A Non-Hollywood techno-thriller
5 January 2008 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Having read quite many of Henning Mankell's novels I was interested to see how well they transform to films. "Brandvägg" (which is 'firewall' in English) puts Kurt Wallander (the resident main character of Mankell's crime novels) in the trails of an international terrorism. What starts as a simple murder investigation soon escalates into bigger things, which I won't spoil here - part of the charm of the movie comes from discovering it yourself. The strong points of the movie are its characters - Rolf Lassgård draws a very human Kurt Wallander and the supporting cast is excellent. The plot is not the most original one (the fragility of technology-depended Western world has been pointed out in many movies before) but holds the viewer's interest to the end. My only gripe is the "happy ending" which seems unnecessary but I guess it is true to the book. In conclusion "Brandvägg" was a positive surprise and I am looking forward to see more Wallander novels on screen.
