Dir. Jorn Faurschou (2005).
Our three favorite Swedish detectives—Wallander, his daughter Linda and her boyfriend Stefan—need to find out whether there’s an underlying connection between a series of brutal murders and the disappearance of three soldiers during a military exercise. This nicely acted police procedural is one of the best features in the Wallander series. Like the others, it unaggressively espouses a leftist political agenda—something the BBC Wallander adaptations have assiduously avoided.
