Storyline

A light plane crashes outside of Mossby strand, and a detonated armour-piercing shell is found in the wreckage. Kurt Wallander is called in to investigate. A few days later, two elderly sisters are killed in an explosion in a sewing supplies shop. Traces of an advanced explosive are found in the burnt-out shop, and evidence soon mounts to indicate that both events are tied to a showdown between two rival narcotics gangs. By chance, Wallander makes a strange discovery about one of the suspects, which leads him back to a traumatic experience from his early days on the force. The continued investigation becomes an intense, violent struggle with Wallander Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Unlike the original short story, which takes place just before the first novel and TV adaptation Faceless Murderer (1995), this takes place after the last novel and TV adaptation Brandvägg (2006). Also, flashbacks to the young Wallander have been added as a nod to another short story in the same book, depicting his first case as a patrolman. See more »

The best Wallander
22 November 2011 | by (Saffron Walden, UK) – See all my reviews

Henning Mankell's 'Wallander' detective stories have been variously brought to the screen. In some respects, they feel like a Swedish version of 'Inspector Morse': a morose middle-aged detective, with a fondness for alcohol and never-to-be-fulfilled romance with younger women, solves preposterous plots in a pretty town bizarrely afflicted by murders. If one can see past the genre, this sort of stuff can be quite entertaining, but I didn't feel much of the two previous (actually made later) versions of Wallander I'd seen: in the Swedish television series, every plot seemed to end with the life of Wallander's daughter under threat; in the British television version, Kenneth Branagh played a man so washed out you could barely see him against the background. The Swedish films starring Rolf Lassgard, however, are much better. Lassgard brings the character believably and vibrantly to life, even if some of the plots are still frankly silly (this one, for example, features bombs detonated by pulse-meters). It's not 'The Killing', by any means; but by far the best of the Wallander adaptations.
