    This is a great series. Wallander is obsessed with work and although he is a great detective, his personal life is often tragic/pathetic. The bleak atmosphere created by the cinematography and soundtrack is truly beautiful and help exhibit how lonely Wallander is. I highly recommend this show. Full Review »

    I would call this a genuine masterpiece of cinematography, scripting, and acting. Creates an involving story woven through with a unique atmosphere. Branagh's talent and professionalism, coupled with his passion for the role, make him truly worthy of his accolades. Full Review »

    First rate... Atmospheric... dark... brooding, and well acted. At times the cinematography is a work of art. If you liked Inspector Morse, you may enjoy this a good deal. Full Review »
