Mad for Ystad
on 8 February 2010
Bought this set and the rest of the Swedish series 1 direct from Sweden (for considerably less that this seller) after becoming totally hooked after this was shown on BBC4. This is without doubt exceptional television. There are not enough superlatives to use to explain just how good it is save to say that the acting is faultless,the interplay between Wallander and daughter,Wallander and colleagues and Linda Wallander and Stefan Lindman is great and the lack of silly trite stories(a'la Midsummer murders and that ilk) refreshing. You forget the subtitles after a few moments and become hooked by the cleverly crafted storylines. Storylines moreover which do not fail to pull punches covering many taboo subjects. A total joy.
