Xenophobia and Vengeance
27 November 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There are two things at work here. First of all, this episode deals with an exhibition relating to Mohammed. With all that is going on in the Mideast, all kinds of bigotry rears its head. People demonstrate outside the building where the exhibit is to take place. Muslim people in Ystad are suddenly the target of hatred. To make matters worse, a power station has been blown up and the locals suspect the Muslims. Soon there are three murders where the persons were not just shot but their bodies decimated by gunfire. They have a connection, but what is it? Wallander now meets a couple of young recruits as well as a woman who has been brought in to advise him. They become new characters in the drama. Higher powers come in and further harass the Mideasterners. Once again, this is about clues and looking at things from a less obvious perspective. This is the second season and Linda is not around.
