Kenneth Branagh stars as Swedish detective Kurt Wallander in nine feature length dramas based on the best-selling detective series by Henning Mankell - an international publishing phenomenon.
Having relocated to the Swedish countryside, Wallander’s fresh start is crushed when the remains of a young woman are found buried in his back garden in An Event in Autumn
. The body is at least five years old. The remains of another young woman are washed up on the shore. She was last seen boarding a ferry – but did she jump or was she pushed?
In The Dogs of Riga
, the corpses of two Latvian men are discovered on a life raft in Ystad harbour. Covered in Russian mafia tattoos, they’ve been tortured and brutally murdered. When Wallander travels to Riga in search of the killers, he becomes entangled in a web of corruption. Who can he trust?
Anna Westin, a childhood friend of Wallander’s daughter Linda, goes missing shortly after visiting Wallander in Before the Frost
. Elsewhere a religious fanatic – Jannek Langas – seems to be responsible for the murder of an elderly woman whose burnt body is found in the woods. When a connection between Westin and Langas is found, Wallander and Linda fear for Anna’s safety.
