A Father Is Still a Father
9 December 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This episode starts with the stabbing death of a woman after an intense argument with her estranged husband. This sets several situations in motion. One is a beautiful daughter who is left alone. The next has to do with her father who is fearing for his life because two weird people have surveillance video of the murder. Meanwhile, Kurt is getting more and more forgetful, exhibiting symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. The acting in this episode is really good. Kristen Henriksson is wonderful again as the intense Wallander. HIs peers are worried about him but don't know what to do. His daughter, Linda, begins to worry about his appearing late for things. The drinking doesn't help much either. Anyway, this is a look at what a man will do to straighten up things that he has caused. Kurt's situation somewhat parallels the actions of the absentee father, and that is scary to him. Well done.
