This is such a lame rendition of totally wonderful books. Kenneth Branagh needs to give his ego a rest and do something else.
The BBC has no shortage of damaged and brooding detectives. Wallender is another one. I wonder if Swedish people really have such utter contempt for policemen.
I've read and enjoy the books and both TV versions of the Wallander - the Swedish and the BBC Kenny Branagh version. Don't compare them, but enjoy each one separately. They all have something different to offer. Of course the TV series don't have the time to delve deeper into the undercurrents of Swedish society and the issues explored in the books, but both TV give a great flavour of the detective and of life in Sweden itself. I recommend watching and reading them all.
I am watching this for a second time. I very much enjoy this series. It is dark and some scenes are very graphic but Wallander is so human, he shows his flaws and so much emotion I love his character. In time I may watch this again.
Found it to DARK for this viewer. Actors playing good parts of folks down and depressed 90% of time.
Excellent scripts. Great acting. Kinda scary and creepy sometimes, but the photography is absolutely wonderful.
Amazing how close the episodes are to how I imagined them when reading the books. Very enjoyable.
Just as good as the first series. As we delve deeper into Wallander's life it doesn't distract from the main story, the main mysteries.
Kenneth Branagh again showcases his great acting here. Minor details are just as wonderful to provide more characterization. I just like that part where he wiped his sweating armpit with the curtains!
