It's hard to say what the attraction is about the Kurt Wallander series: They're not whodunnits; the stories can be as grim as the Southern Swedish landscape where they are set; there's no redeeming humour and the hero is just a normal policeman with no special quirks or character traits. There is nevertheless something remarkably compelling about them. The latest...

2.0 out of 5 stars Wallander's mid-life crisis

1.0 out of 5 stars The day the fire went out, 25 Mar. 2011
