    I think the writers really got the Wallander character wrong. The original series from Sweden, Wallander is a decent, internal optimist not a selfish, depressive character that people don't respect. Yes, bad things happen but his internal strength of character, love of classical music , his dog, and good scotch help him get through. Richardd's comment was exactly right, the character is asI think the writers really got the Wallander character wrong.

    What an insult to viewers:
    There are so many implausible actions and ridiculous omissions it becomes laughable.
    A detective story ought to show some awareness of the importance of credibility.

    The pieces don't tend to add up to much; the suspects and victims often slip out of custody too easily; and each episode's crimes dovetail with some predictability. These aren't brain teasers. Still, the series has great hypnotic allure, as the murders and deaths drive Wallander further into himself.

    The strength of the script and Branagh's finely drawn performance--not to mention the excellent scenes between Branagh and David Warner, who plays Wallander's dad--make up for missteps [by the director].
  3. I recommend the series, though Sunday's opening film, "Sidetracked," does present a bit of a stumbling block.
