Disappointing
5 February 2005 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Despite a promising prelude, especially with the use of real(?) documentary footage, the movie fails to build on the good start. The old cliché of police movies; the troublesome relations of the father and the daughter, both working as cops in the same police station is just one example of how tedious the storyline is.

"Innan Frösten" seems like a quickly shot TV-episode. The characters lack depth and the story moves too fast.

I like the Wallander novels but this movie does not do any justice to the complex character of Kurt Wallander. I don't think that Krister Henriksson is at all that unsuitable for the role of Wallander, it's the lacking script that makes the legendary policeman look shallow.

Ola Norell on the other hand looks way too young to be Stefan Lindman, I'm not sure but I think this is because they wanted to create more electricity between Lindman and Linda Wallander, if that's the case it certainly did'nt work for me.
