Well-made, complex and exciting — 3 years ago
A nice step back into form. Wallander finds a colleague, Svedberg, opening up about emotions and the police department where they work. He is quite soon found dead, and the more an over-worked and exhausted Wallander looks into the case, the more it seems to be connected with another, and it seems like a serial killer is loose. I found the parallel story-lines working very well together, and the cinematography, especially the use of light and focus, was really good. Wallander’s persona blooms in this film, where it touches on his family life as in the first. Or rather, it touches the parts of him that seemingly wilt and make him very human; the emptiness that haunts him from within, branching out as he tries to solve the case is portrayed beautifully, not to mention how exciting this episode was. This last installment of the Wallander mini-series made me long for new episodes!
