Max Kvarne, who considers himself a kind of modern Robin Hood, hides £25,000 from a theft in London in a pineapple can. He travels back with it home to Stockholm. However, the police track him down and send out a detective, Arvid Zinder, to arrest him. Arvid is an old childhood friend of Max, and he has also been in love with his fiancée Irma for a long time. A lawyer, Barman, offers to become Max's defense lawyer, but his motive is really anything but noble. The barman goes to the stingy drug addict Daniel Bondsack's home, where Irma and Max have rented a room and where he thinks the money is hidden, to search the house. However, nobody knows where the pineapple can is anymore.
