A film I could easily recommend to watch
13 October 2005 | by nickesven2003See all my reviews

I was quite surprised to see some of the negative reviews of the film on this page. Not having read the book, I actually thought the film was very enjoyable on several levels: the father versus daughter relationship is entirely credible; the daughter versus old friends story; and finally the actual plot centered around the twisted sect. Seemingly unimportant information was picked up later in the film giving significance to details in a very clever way. The pace of the film is quite good, never a dull moment, suspense is OK if not at the highest level, acting is good to. I can agree with some of the reviewers that Kurt Wallander is a more complex character than what has been portrayed in this particular film, not to blame Krister Henriksson, the 90 minutes didn't allow it. Hopefully the whole palette of his personality will be exposed in the films that will follow. Overall, a film that I would easily recommend to rent or watch on TV.
