Storyline

Whilst investigating the death of a pregnant girl who was pushed off a ferry, Wallander discovers a ten-year old skeleton in the garden of the house where he lives with girl-friend Vanja. Elderly neighbour Fredrik points him towards the house's previous occupant, violent pimp Jan Petrus, whose daughter Ellika went missing a decade earlier. However, after the pregnant girl has been identified by a friend who is also killed, Ellika contacts Wallander and gives him vital information to help identify the skeleton and her murderer. A confrontation with the killer also solves the more recent double slayings. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

The original short story, which was written in 2004, was largely unavailable to the public until 2013 (2014 for the English-language market), meaning most viewers were unfamiliar with the source material when this adaptation was first broadcast in the summer of 2012. See more »

Goofs

There are a lot of typos in Polish names on the passengers list, when vendor in the duty free shop shows it to the policemen on the terminal. See more »

Branagh's Wallander sorts out the seemingly unrelated deaths of several prostitutes
29 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a Wallander fan. I like this policeman who cannot come to accept the brutality he sees on the job and the human natures that spawn it, and who, accordingly, is subject to depression and an inability to let it out via communication. This interferes with his relationships, but in this one he has a female friend with whom he is living. I also like very much the foreign locales that are shown, the different than American social fabric, and the assortment of characters.

Branagh's Wallander is very well done. So are the Swedish versions, and I've reviewed as many of the latter as I could. Branagh is shown as more isolated, working less with a team, perhaps more inclined to overstep his authority, and perhaps more subject to bursts of anger. But since it's been some time since I viewed the 6 episodes in seasons 1 and 2, unreviewed by me, I'm not sure. "An Event in Autumn" is episode 1 in season 3.

This story has one main weakness, which is that Wallander fails to follow up a signal clue until late in the story. Early on, I guessed a critical connection. This is unusual for me. Mysteries usually keep me guessing. Had the story been tighter and stronger, I'd have rated this higher. But its atmosphere and tension are still noteworthy, as well as Branagh's portrayal, and also good photography and movement. Another weakness is the sound. In some places, the music drowned out dialog. In other places, the female English accents were unable for me to decypher.
