Kurt’s back!

Kurt Wallander (Krister Henriksson) in a boat

Kurt Wallander is back on British TV screens tonight as BBC Four begins airing series three of the Swedish Wallander films.

Episode one is The Troubled Man (Den orolige mannen). From the synopsis, Kurt has become a granddad and is on the hunt for daughter Linda’s missing father-in-law.

I have to say Krister Henriksson is my favourite Wallander, though he is sometimes overshadowed in these series by the canine acting talents of Jussi – what a star!

Wallander might be the archetypal Nordic Noir detective, this video explores his role in the genre:

Timeshift: Who is Kurt Wallander?

Wallander begins tonight on BBC Four at 9pm.
