I had to have all this collection. This is better than Midsomer Murders, or most other murder mysteries. Krister is the best of the detectives from the land of the open outwards doors. Perfect for a winters night...
My wife and I enjoy this series together. The Kenneth Branagh version is also good but not as good as the verion with Krister Henrikkson. Thsi Wallander series feels so natural and Henrikkson is Wallander the way Alec Guinness was George Smiley in the BBC verison of Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy.
I love Wallander ( the Swedish original ) , but I found this one was a bit odd, perhaps we miss the wonderful Linda. The plots were still very good, but some of the new characters don't quite have the same magic , and way too much about the prosecutor and her kids- gosh they are everywhere, in almost every case, it seems.
These are excellent detective stories with good scripts,and absorbing. In my opinion superior to Morse,Foyle,and other detectives we are familiar with in U.K. However not everybody can cope with subtitles, but Henriksson as the laid back detective is unique. Sub-plots are unusual and interesting, and locations well chosen.Purchased through Amazon.
As usual an excellent series. A bit confusing in that Linda and Stephan are not in this series at all. Wallander seems to have dyed his hair! Having got over the shock of this it makes compulsive viewing
