While the scenery is still haunting and atmospheric, this original Swedish-language version of Henning Mankell’s Wallander series finds Kurt less troubled than his book portrayal or Kenneth Branagh’s recent English-language version. Krister Henriksson’s Wallander is more of a father-like mentor, than tortured soul, whose keen eye and instincts help him solve rural Sweden’s gruesome upper class, politically-charged crimes. I enjoyed watching this version more than Branagh’s overwrought interpretation.
