Henriksson does it better
18 December 2010 | by Jazzist-H-CrispSee all my reviews

I have now seen three actors playing Wallander. Krister Henriksson, from the original TV series; Kenneth Branagh, from the BBC adaptation; and Rolf Lassgard, as seen in this film. In my opinion, that is the order in which they should be rated. Wallander is a middle-aged, tired cop who has given his life to his job and whose private life has suffered as a consequence. All three actors brought something of that character to the screen, but the most convincing, for me at least, was Krister Henriksson. The other two came close, but there was an 'actorly' aroma about their performances which I did not sense with him. They seemed more like old actors pretending to be old cops. Lassgard's mop of floppy hair seemed more suited to the former role than the latter. Branagh was fairly believable, but basically looked too young to carry off the persona of the weary, battered old cop. Krister Henriksson looked the part and he brought the role to life. For me, he is Wallander.
