The Swedish Wallander

One of my favourite fictional detectives is Henning Mankell’s Kurt Wallander. I only discovered him a couple of years ago but have read quite a few of the Wallander novels since then.

Last year the BBC released a series of televised adaptations featuring Kenneth Branagh in the lead role. I only saw one or two of these (via the iPlayer site) but was very impressed with how they had captured the story. Last night Jane and I watched another episode but it turned out that this was the Swedish version.

We weren’t disappointed though – the acting and direction were just as good and, as a bonus, we got the extra flavour of hearing it in Swedish (while having good subtitles to follow along). Mycket bra (I think)!
