Rolf Lassgard vs. massive computer attack on financial system
29 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rolf Lassgard plays an aging Kurt Wallander in this 2-part TV movie of "Firewall". He's diagnosed with diabetes, which he won't accept easily. The story revolves around an attempt to disable all the financial systems of the western world, thereby disrupting money. This is being planned by wrong-headed idealists who think this will change the world and rectify its imbalances, especially African poverty. The first half is more or less typical Wallander police work, which means figuring out a murder case (a taxi driver) and an accidental death near an ATM machine, plus another murder of a girl suspected of the first murder. We are right there as the clues build up. Part one includes an assassin on the loose.

Wallander stories are always interesting because of the personal angles and conflicts within the police group. Lassgard works with his ex-wife, plus he has some issues with Martinsson.

Part two is more about the computer end of the case, intensely so, because the clues point to a computer attack in the offing.

Although the suspense is by no means nail-biting, the story holds our interest. I watched it on two successive nights. Rolf Lassgard makes an interesting Wallander, being the furthest thing from glamorous, and rather volcanic at times. He has a full array of human weaknesses.

As Wallander depictions go, this one is about average. It's not high budget, doesn't have huge amounts of actions, and is not crisply edited. Yet there's something about these Wallander movies, no matter who plays him (Rolf Lassgard, Kenneth Branagh or Krister Henriksson) that makes them easy to take and enjoyable to watch.
