Disgruntled residents on an estate which is frequently burgled form their own posse and nab a burglar, Polish immigrant Jarek Kozyra, who one of them,Olle,beats up and leaves for dead in the woods, torching his car. When Jarek's wife reports him missing she gives Wallander his mobile phone, on which he finds a picture of a dead woman, taken in a house Jarek robbed. Is she perhaps Olle's wife, supposedly staying with her mother but actually missing herself. As Wallander bonds with Katarina's son over a game of football, soccer holds the answer to the case.

Burglar uncovers a murder in this routine Wallander episode
3 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode of Wallander, The Burglar or The Thief, is below par for the series. It comes across as more or less routine and lacking in spirit or energy. The dramatic conflicts have ebbed, and what has been inserted seems a bit phony or tentative. Certain plot elements are too contrived.

A burglar comes across a murdered woman. Three houses have been burgled. Only one wife is "missing" or out of town, so that we can be sure who did it. The main suspense is that no corpse has been found and Katerina is reluctant to issue warrants, so that Kurt comes into conflict with her. Meanwhile the thief has also gone missing, reported by his wife. Kurt knows who's responsible for these killings, but having trouble proving it.

Although Lena Endre does a reasonable job acting, she seems consistently to have one main expression, which is a half smile and a knowing look in her eyes, as if she is above it all. The same was the case in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. If she can emote, the directors and/or the script are not getting it out of her.

The actor who plays the killer in this story does a very fine job showing a range of emotions. I'd rate the story 5.5 if I could.
