Tv Season Info

Weary Swedish cop Kurt Wallander (Kenneth Branagh) catches few breaks in Season 2 of the gripping mystery series adapted from Swedish crime author Henning Mankell's "Inspector Wallander" books. He investigates a double homicide at an isolated house; looks into the circumstances surrounding a friend's father's death; and hunts a possible serial killer who's targeting older men. At the same time, he battles through a major depression and faces up to the barren landscape that's become his life. As his faltering father (David Warner) tells him, "you don't look at the world, you just drive straight through it."

Critic Reviews for Wallander: Series 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Although the mysteries to be solved in this series are satisfyingly complex, the greatest pleasure in watching them comes from the breathtaking beauty of the Swedish countryside and the aching solitude of Branagh's Wallander.

If you want someone who can disintegrate on screen, Kenneth Branagh has at least had the training.

September 10, 2013 | Full Review…

Branagh really is terrific in the role, but the problem is that it's really hard to believe that someone so inertia-bound one moment can turn on a krona and become supercop the next.

September 10, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A depressed, humorless policeman isn't exactly an original conceit, and Wallander itself, besides its coldly beautiful settings, isn't a particularly original show either.

September 10, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Thanks to Kenneth Branagh, it all holds together.
