Wallander (on DVD)

based on the books by Henning Mankell [DVD Wallender]

Kenneth Branagh plays a Swedish detective in the coastal community of Ystad in Sweden in this excellent production of Wallander. The relationships between people in this series is what I find most appealing, in particular, Wallander's relationship with his adult daughter. The stories are gritty, compelling and tension-packed. Fans of actor Tom Hiddleston will want to see this as well. Series One also has an excellent documentary about the author, Henning Mankell. -- recommended by Kim J. - Bennett Martin Public Library

[Also available: The Novels of Henning Mankell that the show is based on.]
