Eleven-year-old Johannes is found dead in a barn after he has been sexually abused. Lindman is charged with telling the father, whom he knows from a local shooting club, but is taken off the case for previous unprofessional contact and pursues his own investigations. The prime suspect, a man seen chatting to Johannes at a supermarket, is found dead but his neighbour, an ex-policeman, had already arrested a similar child killer years earlier. As the investigation continues, it is clear that child pornography is involved, reopening old memories for Lindman. Written by don @ minifie-1

Moody;Broody;Austere and Mesmerising!
31 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode was shown on English BBCTV last night Oct 30th 2010. It was an amazing and tense episode. I felt all the angst. Many have probably seen this episode but it was the first time for me. Those who know, will understand when I say I was devastated by the conclusion. I still have a lump in my throat. I first watched the English version of Wallander which was OK! However, when I thought to try the Swedish version, I have never looked back, sub titles have never bothered me. Krister Henricksson is marvellous. What an actor! All the main characters are wonderful and I care about each and everyone of them. When I care about a character, it is a measure to me, of how I grow to love the series. I am captured. The Swedish landscape is wonderful and austere, sometimes even eerie. I love it. The production is second to none with superb acting, so I think directing too! Wallander I think is a tortured soul but does not wear his heart on his sleeve and is neither a martyr to this. For me Sweden IS Wallander. I hope that BBCTV will continue with this series. This is worth the TV licence alone! Roll on next Saturday, when I can prepare for the next troubled and angst ridden episode! By the way, I am 63 myself but I am able to appreciate the slightly unkempt gorgeousness, of Ole Rapace.
