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

Goofs

Names of the both young Polish girls (the one killed on the ferry and her prostitute friend), aren't Polish at all. "Snezna Botez" is completely nonsense (despite there is a Polish word "sniezna", but it's not human first name, it means "snowy"). Only surname of the other one - "Nowak" - is common in the Slavic countries like Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and others. See more »

Beautifully depressing, inspiringly moribund, loved it!
9 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Oh, you thought perhaps because in the opening scenes Detective Wallander appeared to be in much better physical and emotional shape, this installment would be sweetness 'n' light?

What? You figured, here's a whole new kind of depressive detective, one who bakes cakes, does jigs by the light of the midnight sun, and sings "Oklahoma!"?

Rest assured, the cavalcade of cadavers continues apace! Dainty shot of arm attached to torso washed up on a cold beach framed by grey skies. Cheery scene in which Wallander discovers human skull in his backyard.

Nice attempted homicide-by-sledgehammer by a perp who could be the grandson of Chuck Manson.

More gray skies. Brooding. Drinks. Brooding. Saskia Reeves' character Vanja Andersson, is elegant, mysterious, alluring as Wallander's girlfriend, a welcome Anglo-Dutch balm for sore eyes. A lovely lady and fine actress whose presence keeps one from reaching for the box of double edged razor blades....

Missed this series during its long absence from PBS, glad it's back and look forward to many more. They say the Nordic people are prone to brooding. A fine pastime, fun for the whole family. Wallander aptly demonstrates the fine art of brooding and solving the unsolvable simultaneously.
