A light plane crashes outside of Mossby strand, and a detonated armour-piercing shell is found in the wreckage. Kurt Wallander is called in to investigate. A few days later, two elderly sisters are killed in an explosion in a sewing supplies shop. Traces of an advanced explosive are found in the burnt-out shop, and evidence soon mounts to indicate that both events are tied to a showdown between two rival narcotics gangs. By chance, Wallander makes a strange discovery about one of the suspects, which leads him back to a traumatic experience from his early days on the force. The continued investigation becomes an intense, violent struggle with Wallander Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


Unlike the original short story, which takes place just before the first novel and TV adaptation Faceless Murderer (1995), this takes place after the last novel and TV adaptation Brandvägg (2006). Also, flashbacks to the young Wallander have been added as a nod to another short story in the same book, depicting his first case as a patrolman. See more »

User Reviews

The best Wallander so far.

Of the three ''Wallander'' productions, the two are Swedish and the other British with Kenneth Branagh, this is by far the best as Rolf Lassgård proves that he is one of the top Nordic actors and deserves absolute respect from the audience. His performance as Inspector Kurt Wallander of Ystad police force is magnificent and way better than the other two (Branagh and Henriksson) in the later editions. This is the first, chronologically, attempt to adapt Henning Mankell's most eminent creation, the solemn and melancholic Kurt Wallander who became one of the most beloved characters in contemporary European crime fiction. Furthermore Marie Richardson (''Innan vi dör'') is terrific in her portrayal of Wallander's sidekick, Maja. The scriptwriters remained as faithful as possible both to the plotline and the characterization and each episode of the series is actually a tv-movie, lasting approximately 90 minutes. For those who are not familiar with the character and Mankell's work in general, this series can introduce him to the fictional world of the ''Wallander'' saga. Those who weren't satisfied with the other two editions, should check out this one and maybe they will find what they are searching: a decent adaptation of the books with some great performances by seasoned Swedish actors.
