From the producers of the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Revenge is based on an original story by "The Godfather of Swedish Crime" Henning Mankell, featuring his most popular character, the titular chief inspector Kurt Wallander (Krister Henriksson). The Revenge begins with Kurt Wallander celebrating his 62nd birthday, having achieved his lifelong dream of purchasing a house by the sea. Suddenly, a heavy explosion disrupts the peace and quiet in Ystad, knocking out the town's lone

"The Revenge" is a smooth-enough entertainment that should appeal to Wallander completists and aficionados of the cresting wave of Scandinavian crime stories.

"The Revenge" is well-made, above-average TV, but it seems small for the big screen. The plot is a bit predictable, and we're still getting to know the characters when the story ends.

On the whole this is a routine mystery tale existing mainly to introduce new characters to the Wallander universe and allow for future installments.

An old-fashioned, taut, well-crafted thriller-complete with several wonderful twists.

Suffers from its small-screen origins.

Here is one of the year's best and most provocative thrillers and maybe it says something that it's a 91-minute installment of a Swedish TV series.

A cop movie for grown ups. Or at least sophisticated teenagers... It's just great filmmaking.

One hopes, after seeing this, that the Scandinavian producers will think again before imagining that the success of Larsson's work in the U.S. gives any old production a pass to follow in its footsteps.

If you're not a Mankell aficionado prior to seeing it, the film itself won't send you running for his books - or even the other parts of the TV series.

The kickoff for season two of a series of feature-length Swedish television adaptations of stories by popular Nordic crime writer Henning Mankel, Wallander: The Revenge is an efficient, unfussy examination of crimes and punishments.

Given that Henriksson is in his 20th hour of playing Wallander onscreen, it's no surprise that his performance has a well-worn ease; like the character himself, he seems to have been doing this his whole life.

The film treats its headline-ready topics as merely window dressing for a whodunit that's without intrigue or surprise.

What separates The Revenge is simple and what's so often missing from American thrillers - respect for the intelligence of its audience. This is complex stuff, not purely on a procedural level but on a thematic one.
