Overview

Kenneth Branagh stars as Detective Kurt Wallander in thrilling adaptations of three best-selling crime novels by Henning Mankell. Your heart goes out to the brilliant but only-too-human Wallander as he searches for the truth behind shocking murders. What connects the suicide of a young woman and the murder of a government minister? What does the brutal killing of a cab driver have to do with cyber-terrorists? And how to catch a Midsummer's Eve assassin? Enjoy fiendishly inventive plots, unwound in Sweden's spectacular countryside. In "Sidetracked," a young woman burns herself to death in front of Wallander. Later, a former politician is found brutally murdered -- killed with an axe and scalped. As the deaths continue with the victims killed in similar ways, Wallander must reveal the link between the cases. In "Firewall," Wallander investigates two seemingly separate incidents -- a heart attack victim and the brutal murder of a cab driver by two teenage girls. As Wallander delves deeper into why the girls committed the murder, the two cases lead to one conspiracy that stretches far beyond the borders of Sweden. And in "One Step Behind," three teenagers are murdered on Midsummer's Eve, each with a bullet to the head. When one of Wallander's colleagues is found killed in exactly the same way, Wallander must discover the connection.

    I Also Recommend:

    Wallander:One Step Behind

    The character that Henning Mankell creates as is visually seen thru it's screen character Kenneth Branagh is far more real and down to earth relative to the normal response to a crime that a Police Officer has to work thru,and I say this,since I was one many years ago.The style,characters,settings,and just how the advanced camera work along with the natural settings within Ystad,Sweden,lend themselves to a moment by moment intrigue,that sustains the viewer throughout the movie.Greater substance,less flash,and such a attachment to the characters,that you find yourself walking within their lives.I would highly recommend this movie,because the director and writers have made this story believable and more true to life than your average Hollywood production.
