Essential for Wallander fans,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wallander [DVD]  (DVD)
Some Swedish friends are not so sure about a British Wallander but I found the interpretation very faithful to the Mankell stories and a good juxtaposition to the Swedish film versions. Kenneth Branagh gives a more complex performance allowing more emotional struggle than the Swedish actors allow. I enjoyed the ambivalence of the characterisation but it will depend on how committed you are to the Swedish stoicism. I recommend this version of the Wallander stories as a complement to the Swedish versions not as an alternative.
