Wallander is Back!

News & CommentPosted by El Grande de JB de Forth Mon, July 06, 2009 01:43:56

After the 2 pilot episodes last year I was disappointed there were no more - Now there are! All 13 episodes (including the first 2 pilots) of this outstanding original Swedish-language version of Wallander is being broadcast on BBC Four. This puts the much-hyped Kenneth Brannagh version deeply in the shade, the tense nuances of the native language matching the writing of each taut episode to a fine tee.

BTW if you are a Geordie, like me, you will find this very easy to follow, as a lot of the day-to-day dialog is the same as 'wats spoaken hya man'. The on-screen english translation is terse, but sufficiently helpful with some of the more 'technical' police terms.

Don't miss this, you will regret it if you do.
