In Sweden, from where "Wallander" originates, it's not really known as a TV series but a straight to video movie series, with some key episodes premiered in theaters. Only later, usually 1-2 years, are the episodes shown on TV. This is a common release cycle for Swedish crime series. See more »
I have to rate this show highly! We have a hard time finding episodes here in the US. 2 different streaming sources have it here in the US. I found this show after watching the BBC Wallander, starring Kenneth B. The BBC version is really pretty good, but the 2005 version is better in my opinion. Krister's portrayal is really good. Season 2 is the best, but season 1 is good too. The stories start out subtly and grow from there. The day to day goings on in the department add to it quite a bit. Wallander is kind of like a Columbo type, but certainly not the same. It is interesting to note that even this series is a remake. I found the original Wallander, Swedish version too which is certainly worth watching but the stories were redone over the 3 versions out there. The original series which I think was done in the 90's stars a guy who is definitely like a flawed Columbo. I still like the Krister portrayal best. I am very much looking forward to the movie release in 2013 and the followup series if we can get them. If you don't like subtitles, then this is not for you. I found it funny watching the Swedes go to IKEA in Sweden, not sure why since that's where that firm is based. However, my interest is probably the view into Swedish culture too.
