5.0 out of 5 stars SO, SO "NATURAL", 8 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Wallander - Collected Films 1-7 [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
I just am so impressed with ALL the wonderful Scandanavian thrillers that are recently being shown on our UK television.

They are so intelligent in content, letting us,the viewers really "think" about all aspects of the stories,not merely the "whodunnit" but as to the personal lives and emotions of all involved.

Even more impressive is the fact that all lead roles are not typical "hunks" in the male actors or absolute "beauties" in the female ones.

All are utterly believable and are "real" inasmuch as they are just as you might find in any community......natural and undoctored.

The Swedes,Danes etc are renowned for their blonde,fair beauty,especially in youth but these great performances show that age can still hold it all in an entirely different,mature way with something rather deeper simply borne of age......just as in any country in fact.

Perceived beauty in ANY country eventually fades but great drama never will...and in any case,true beauty is subjective and how many now recognise the "older woman" as being someone rather special?....(Helen Mirren; Judi Dench et al?)

Well----Wallander certainly isn't seeking some naive young thing,lol!

This very fact,the believability in the hope of a lonely man seeking mature love,striving for deeper understanding with his heart's desire, a thinking woman with a wistfulness about her, whilst at the same time solving the most awful of crimes means that the entire series of Wallander is something very special.

No great wonder that the Danish thrillers are taking the UK by storm......Wallander is merely one such grest and I'm collecting all that I can of them just now!
