A Reasonable Beginning
16 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having just watched the same episode in the Branagh series, there are elements of strength. The problem is that in this one, we don't get the real foundation for the relationship between father and daughter, leading to the horrors he creates. I know guilt has great affect, but we should be let in on some of the goings on. We get to meet Wallander for the first time. He is unfriendly, impulsive, distant, and a bit mean. We get to meet Linda, his daughter, who has just passed her exams and graduated from the academy. Of course, Dad forgets all about it and doesn't attend. He has all kinds of excuses but she is having none of it. As for the case, people who are committing classical sins. having test tube babies, having abortions or performing them, etc., are being murdered by someone. The father was at Jonestown and is nutty as a fruitcake. This makes for an interesting plot. The downside of this is, as another reviewer has pointed out, that the police are about as incompetent as they can be. The mess up the most basic protections possible. There is a van, loaded with explosives. At the very least it should have been disabled. It is left and the bad guy jumps in and takes off. There are at least five times in this episode where sheer stupidity reigns. Nevertheless, the characters are beginning to develop, so let's give it a chance.
