Krister Henriksson stars in the title role in this Swedish television adaptation of author Henning Mankell’s crime novels, in which police inspector Kurt Wallander becomes so consumed with the cases he investigates, that his private life is a mess.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Can be seen also as stand-alone seperate stories from the books as it is mostly based on new material that tell about Wallander's last years as an investigator. Sadly the stories are pretty predictable and follow the same pattern in storytelling, but this is helped by solid acting especially in the last couple of films when our lead has to act out of his comfort bubble. Solid crime noir if a little ordinary at times.
