Young Wallander – season 1

Quite good.

Young Wallander is a young, edgy, and modern series that sees Henning Mankell’s iconic detective Kurt Wallander investigate his gripping first case. The story focuses on the formative experiences – professional and personal – faced by Kurt as a recently graduated police officer in his early twenties.

It’s set in Sweden but the cast is mostly British.

I was impressed with Adam Pålsson as Young Wallander.

Most of the criticism I’ve read comes from fans of earlier adaptations of an older Kurt Wallander played by actors Rolf LassgårdKrister Henriksson, and Sir Kenneth Branagh.

I’d never seen any of those, so Young Wallander worked for me.

In fact, I’ve started reading the Wallander books. Very good.
