Storyline

Linda discovers nine corpses and a live baby girl locked in an abandoned container lorry. Her father assumes the driver fled when he realized his cargo of illegal immigrants had died. A photo leads to a convent, whose abbess - an evacuee herself as a child - has helped many refugees and believes the ends justify the means to give them better lives. Holmblad, who owned and drove the lorry, is found, tortured and murdered, and his house ransacked. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

When Charlotte Fich's character, Henrietta, replies to Wallander "I love to travel" (da. "Jeg elsker at rejse"), it could be a nudge to her lead part as Ingrid Dahl on the Danish TV series Rejseholdet (2000) (da. "Rejseholdet") about a mobile special cases police unit. See more »

The most powerful and moving Wallander episode yet.
15 September 2009 | by gray4See all my reviews

As a long-time fan of the Wallander novels I was delighted when I found that BBC was going to show the original Swedish television series, with sub-titles.

I wasn't disappointed. This was the ninth story and, seen on a weekly basis, while some have been better than others, the quality has remained consistently high. Indeed, I am very surprised at the low ratings given to these episodes, presumably by the initial Swedish TV audience. But this was the best yet, with a complex storyline with unexpected twists (unusually for IMDb, the 2 plot summaries give too much away and I am glad I read them only after seeing the programme. The characterisation of and relations between Wallander, Linda and Stefan gets ever more complex and the ending is a real tear-jerker.

Yes, I hope that Kenneth Branagh will make more Wallander programmes for BBC, but this Swedish TV series sets a very high standard indeed, and this is the most powerful and moving episode of the nine seen so far,
