Movie Info

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 power transformer. When more explosions follow, the military is called in and the little town starts to look like a war zone. Are the explosions acts of sabotage? Or terrorism directed at a local Islamic exhibition? Everything is in chaos as Wallander navigates through the darkness to track down the culprits. -- (C) Music Box

Critic Reviews for Wallander: The Revenge

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

"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.

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.

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.
