Inspector Wallander and his team investigate a murder and an unexplained death. They arrest 18 year old Sonja Hokberg after they find a taxi driver stabbed to death in his car. Sonja is found covered in blood and freely admits to the killing, though she provides little additional information. In the second case, the police find a dead man on the street who was apparently using the ATM. He is Denis Falk and the police learn that he had just recently been given a clean bill of health after a thorough medical exam. When Sonja escapes from her jail cell and Falk's body is stolen from a mortuary, the police discover a link between the two. When they find Falk's computers running a mysterious program however, they find they are dealing with a terrorist plot. Wallander's social life takes a positive turn when his daughter Linda signs him up at a dating service and he gets a call from an attractive divorcée. Could this be the start of a new life?

Uneven, still better than the Swedish originals
26 October 2009 | by pivicSee all my reviews

As the first film of the English Wallander mini-series set a shining example, the second installment was a bit of a let-down in my eyes. Despite the obvious problems with turning a story that somewhat evolves around hackers into something eventful and interesting, Wallander himself isn't a very happening person; it's what's inside that makes most of this series kick, if you look away from the wonderful cinematography, the energetic screenplay, good dialogue and real acting, this story didn't entice me. It's a bit like flogging a dead horse, but still, not a very good TV film. I wish I could say something better about it, but the other two installments are, however, recommendable.
