Moody Detective Wallander Returns To Masterpiece Mystery
Award-winning actor Kenneth Branagh returns as Inspector Kurt Wallander, the moody Swedish detective created by mystery writer Henning Mankell, who famously lit the spark for today's passionate interest in Scandinavian crime fiction.
Masterpiece Mystery! presents three new 90-minute whodunits on Wallander III, airing Sundays, this fall on tpt 2, starting Sunday, September 9 at 8 p.m.
USA Today hailed the last season as "an adult, modern MYSTERY! designed for those who want their murder stories to land somewhere between cozy and hopelessly dark."
The depressed detective himself might beg to differ. "I'm basically quite a cheerful person!" Wallander insists to a dubious colleague in the opening episode of the new season. But his inner sunny outlook is trapped in unremitting Nordic gloom.
Wallander III finds the Swedish cop trying to improve his disposition -- in the face of torture killings, dashed romance, homicidal do-gooders, and a resentful grown-up daughter.
