Goodbye, Kurt

Tonight, Krister Henrikson’s final Wallander episode airs on BBC 4. After 3 series over 8 years, it’s time to say “hej då” to our favourite Skånsk polis.

Krister is interviewed in the Guardian about his departure from the show, you can read it here: http://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2014/jun/20/krister-henriksson-on-leaving-wallander

Krister is far and away my favourite Kurt Wallander. I respect Rolf and Kenneth as actors but didn’t feel they were a great fit for the role of a disgruntled and dishevelled provincial policeman. I prefer these films even to the source material, though I’m not not sure how popular that opinions is..

Hej hej Kurt, we’ll miss you from our TVs!

(However, many episodes are now available on UK Netflix if you want to relive some of the good old days)

Let me know what you think of tonight’s episode in the comments.

Wallander -The Sad Bird airs tonight at 9pm and will be available on BBC iPlayer after that.
