Trivia

In Sweden, from where "Wallander" originates, it's not really known as a TV series but a straight to video film series, with some key parts premiered in theaters. Only later, usually 1-2 years, were the films shown on TV. This used to be a common release cycle for Swedish crime series. See more »

User Reviews

Excellent!!!Ten stars out of ten:
14 December 2015 | by bluered-84815See all my reviews

There is a great pleasure to be had in watching cinema in a language that you do not understand;an adventure and straining of your faculties in trying to derive the meaning of phrases that sometimes do resemble English, but not totally.The sub-titles help.Henriksson is the consummate actor, at once the father figure and also the failed father-man.I have always found a certain attractive sparsity in Swedish drama that contrast the more over-weighty and over-wordy cinema of British and American traditions,a leaner more trenchant quality.Sometimes quite a bit less is more, especially in convoluted and complex narrations that seemingly have no apparent solution but deliver more satisfaction and amusement in the final denouement. This is without a doubt much better that what was a very good English production.Intelligent acting,enticing cinematography,and story plots to match!
