Wallander Walks Away
26 May 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Having seen the Swedish version of this final episode, I have to talk about a spark. As Kurt begins to succumb to Alzheimers, he becomes even more morose than he normally is. He finds himself trying to find his daughter's father-in-law, who has some connection to spying. As he does this, he becomes more and more confused. He at times is almost zombie-like. Granted, this insidious disease takes the soul out of a person, but early onset isn't presented with much reality. Wallander is awfully lucid most of the time but occasionally drops off the face of the earth. The performance is dull and that is the problem. One of our greatest actors interprets the role with a single dimension and gets by on pure luck. Branagh is so stoic as to appear catatonic. A bit of a disappointment to end this series.
