An Exploration of Racism and Political Games
18 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a study of what racism can be in a non-American country. When a Liberian man is murdered by the railroad tracks, we are treated to the same awful comments, including the "N" word, that can be found anywhere else. There is tension because of the race issue which somehow has affected the life of a successful politician and long-time friend of Wallander. When Linda finds out that Stefan had sex with a hotel manager, she cuts him off. The joyful professional relationship between the two is compromised. Meanwhile, Kurt faces the prospect of having to go after a man he cares about. Another subplot is an overly zealous, self-centered policeman who has been sent to the precinct with a hidden agenda. This is an OK episode, but it didn't grab me as some have.
