WallanderRating: 6 likes, 1 dislikes

The three epsisodes of Wallander on BBC Sunday nights were based on the crime novels of Henning Mankel I haven't read any of these novels so it was something different to watch and experience! A change from Frost, Morse etc! The stories are set in Sweden which is great to be able to get an insight into different crime areas! We usually associate Sweden with Abba,Ulrika Jonsson and that is the only "crime" some of us may have experienced! Read more

I indeed read most of the novels of Mankel and I have to state that the BBC did a terrific/great job of adapting them. imho 90 min per episode are a little short but okay. Read more
