Brilliant TV movie with a perfect Rolf Lassgård
6 October 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

what a strange site is IMDb. How can you deliver such a low votes to a nearly perfect TV-movie, The end of the site to my belief.

Rolf Lassgård plays perfectly his roll as Kurt Wallander, and he is more in control than the book character. Now you really believe this world.

And it is really beautiful done. Director and crew deliver a perfect job. And they reward the viewer.

What is left is a brilliant TV-movie, with a stunning Rolf Lassgård, and also the rest of the cast has perfect contributions.

I read the book before but this is one of the few occasions that film is better than book. A big 9!
