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 »

The Swedish Morse
12 December 2008 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

A beautiful small town full of psychopathic mass killers, brought to justice by a grumpy middle aged detective - no, it's not 'Inspector Morse', but 'Wallender', the British programme's Swedish equivalent. And whereas in every Morse story, the lead detective fell for a woman who turned out to be involved in the murders, here (on the evidence of the two stories recently shown on British television) every murder in some way involves Wallender's daughter. The plotting may be overblown, but the tone of these adaptations is procedural, and the characters generally show the famed Scandinavian sense of reserve; this makes Wallender appear less obviously interesting than Morse, but with skilled direction, the nasty stuff appears genuinely creepy. It's the chilling sense of atmosphere that makes the program a winner, in my book, rather than the stories; so it will be interesting to see how the recent BBC adaptation of the same novels compares.
