Storyline

An old friend of Kurt Wallander, solicitor Sten Torstensson, visits him one day to tell him that his father has passed away close to Brösarp under peculiar circumstances. Kurt does not take his friend's worry seriously. Shortly after, the friend is found brutally murdered and Wallander realises too late that he was wrong. In the hunt for the killer Wallander finds a conspiracy of crimes that leads him to a company that handles transplantations of human organs. Behind the company he finds the image of a man. An elegant and self-confident man who writes his own rules. But who is he? Who gives himself the right to judge over other people? Whose morals decide what is right and wrong? Kurt Wallander is not one of them. In "The man who smiled" he gets himself into crossfire of immorality, betrayal, lies and everything else a man will do to be loved. Written by Tomas Tivemark

Wallander more tired and depressed than ever!
26 December 2003 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

A very well done drama with the Ystad (Swedish city in the south)policeman Wallander. This time more tired and depressed than ever. Rolf Lassgård proofs once again what a great actor he is.

A old lawyer dies in a tragic car accident. Well thats what it seems to be at first. But the lawyers son thinks its a masked murder. Wallander gets into the case but have problems of his own. Both with the booze and with a love relation with his police colleague Maja (Marie Richardson). And it dont make it better then he makes a big misstake at a official journey to Stockholm.

Soon hell breaks loose and Wallander encounter some ruthless murders that wont stop for nothing to cover up for something very wrong. For all the Wallander/Rolf Lassgård fans out there this is a must! Theres some quite good action scenes in there to.

One funny note is that the in Sweden well known comedian Claes Månsson (Lorry/Yrrol) have a role as a bad guy. Takes some time to get used to but he do a good job. i´ll give it 9/10
