Eleven-year-old Johannes is found dead in a barn after he has been sexually abused. Lindman is charged with telling the father, whom he knows from a local shooting club, but is taken off the case for previous unprofessional contact and pursues his own investigations. The prime suspect, a man seen chatting to Johannes at a supermarket, is found dead but his neighbour, an ex-policeman, had already arrested a similar child killer years earlier. As the investigation continues, it is clear that child pornography is involved, reopening old memories for Lindman.Written by

This episode was shown on English BBCTV last night Oct 30th 2010. It was an amazing and tense episode. I felt all the angst. Many have probably seen this episode but it was the first time for me. Those who know, will understand when I say I was devastated by the conclusion. I still have a lump in my throat. I first watched the English version of Wallander which was OK! However, when I thought to try the Swedish version, I have never looked back, sub titles have never bothered me. Krister Henricksson is marvellous. What an actor! All the main characters are wonderful and I care about each and everyone of them. When I care about a character, it is a measure to me, of how I grow to love the series. I am captured. The Swedish landscape is wonderful and austere, sometimes even eerie. I love it. The production is second to none with superb acting, so I think directing too! Wallander I think is a tortured soul but does not wear his heart on his sleeve and is neither a martyr to this. For me Sweden IS Wallander. I hope that BBCTV will continue with this series. This is worth the TV licence alone! Roll on next Saturday, when I can prepare for the next troubled and angst ridden episode! By the way, I am 63 myself but I am able to appreciate the slightly unkempt gorgeousness, of Ole Rapace.
