De Wet reluctantly agrees to help her fulfill her dream, and in doing so, realizes his own need for healing and inner peace. While they fall in love, Basson wakes from his sedation and plots his revenge against De Wet. On the night of the last tango, the serial killer arrives in Loxton ... Written by Deon Meyer See less
