A great watch
28 March 2010 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Branagh eat your heart out. You and all your British cronies are just too British. This is the real thing. This first episode of series two is a bit overblown and the plot is basically potty and not very satisfying in its conclusion. I don't want to give spoilers, so I won't elaborate.

However, that does not matter much (just as it never did in the excellent Inspector Morse series). What holds our attention is the story, yes, but mainly the acting, the setting and the atmosphere.

This Wallander (pronounced "vaLANDer" - BBC and Branagh please note) is great. He is over 60 (don't policeman retire early in Sweden?) and he is less of an emotional wreck. In fact, he seems to have perked up a bit since the previous series. But, he is serious and steady - until he cracks and starts to rant and rave. This is a great moment, because it is no unexpected and so rare.

The supporting characters are also very good.

No mention of his daughter, though. What's going to happen there?
