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 »
Krister is by far a much better Wallander than Kenneth Brannaugh will ever be. Krister is a real Swede as the character and the relationship he has with his team and daughter, Linda (who is sadly no longer with us),irreplaceable. Evidently new shows are on TV over there and I look forward to them being purchased and shown through MhZ International Mystery in the US. For me, authentic characters, locations are much better because you pick up on the culture which obviously fits well in the show. Personally, I don't mind the subtitles because I get to hear their voices and get a sense of them as a human being. You even learn a bit of the language. The other sad departure on the show is the ironic ending on the last episode of a character that I really liked. This mimicked the actress Johanna Sallstrom's real life ending shortly thereafter and I knew this when I watched the ending and found it very emotional.
