Series 1

Wallander stars Kenneth Branagh as Swedish detective Kurt Wallander, investigating a series of violent and terrifying murders in the beautiful setting of Skane, southern Sweden.  Sidetracked, Firewall and One Step Behind follow Kurt Wallander -  a disillusioned everyman - as he struggles against a rising tide of violence in the apparently sleepy backwaters in and around Ystad in beautiful southern Sweden.

Baffling crimes and seemingly motiveless murders are investigated by Wallander leading to surprising and shocking discoveries in three compelling feature length films, based on the best-selling books by Henning Mankell - an international publishing phenomenon with 25 million copies sold worldwide.
