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

Strong season with twisted ending
1 March 2013 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

Having watched the whole Season 1 almost in succession (however, after Season 2), I am happy to admit that the general impression obtained is good and recommended. In spite of the fact that the plots are not equally even or interesting. Sometimes the criminal is revealed (or can be guessed) too soon/easily, and race with time is not always catchy to follow when you know the guilty person and his or her motives. To some extent, it depends on the topics and the number of twists; to me, for example, secrets from the past are more interesting than plain money lust or modern crime. But the last episode is among the best ones.

I definitely like Swedish Wallander-series more than the British one as it is more ensemble here; in the UK, Kenneth Branagh sticks too much out from his co-actors and his character is more a kind of loner.
