I love it. They often broadcast them on Norwegian TV.

The books are good, as well. Totally recommended.

The episodes are quite long but they really are so good.

It's just sad that Johanna Sällström (who played Linda Wallander, Wallander's daughter) killed herself after acting in the first series, so isn't in the second one. The guy who writes the books was so upset by it that he couldn't imagine anybody else playing her, and wrote her character out of the books too

It's cool to see a swedish series that have kick-ass action scenes like big hollywood productions.

oh and the language is like angels singing. Might be just me though.

Yeah the SvenskFilmindustri produce them, and I imagine they are pretty big-budget seeing as they have had a hand in some other big films.

(I swear their logo is on the LOTR films? maybe just because I bought the DVDs in Finland though >_> )

... Seriously? This is it?

TWO PEOPLE on the whole of UG watch Wallander?

Well, I'm disappointed. Get yourselves watching it now!

Whenever I see that it's coming on NRK (the Norwegian channel where it's showed) I automatically change the channel. I don't know why, I've never actually watched it.

Maybe it's my subconscious hate for Sweden Nah just kidding.. but I think I change the channel because I judge it based on the fact that MOST Scandinavian TV shows are awful.
#13
Well it's on BBC4 from time to time, they are showing season 2 now.

Or you could torrent it.

Or watch it on ovguide


Or watch this one on iplayer, it's the latest one: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00rwm3r

Swedish is a lot like English after a while, you don't have to concentrate that hard to understand it.

Having seen Swedish hour on YLE in Finland I have to agree

But Wallander is really good, you should watch it next time you see it come on.

Wallander is great, but it's not actually a TV-series. It's just a lot of movies released about a year apart (quite like Beck, which I think is even better).

I actually once watched all Wallander movies (some time ago, there are more of them now) in a giant Wallander marathon with a friend. Almost cured my interest for a while

Never heard of it, but I finished watching The Wire a couple of days ago and I've been looking for another TV series to watch so I might try this.

They did a crappy remake for all the english-speakers who can't read.

Stick to the swedish version, it's much better
#20
I'm not reading this thread because somebody's bound to spoil the 2nd series.

I started watching series 2 but kept forgetting to record it.

The first series was amazing, though. In an understated, unflashy way.

Love it, glad to see other people on UG enjoying it at least >_>


Edit : And yeah stick to the Swedish version not that Kenneth Brannagh shit

I love Wallander. Anything Swedish is pretty cool really.




Also series 2 is on iplayer.
#26
Bah.

I've only seen like 2 from the new series so I can't speak for spoilers but I don't think that much has changed really, I think you could pick up at any episode.

Although the last of the first series makes that not true, and watching the first series out-of-sync proves very confusing regarding Linda's bodyweight

ooh, bitchy... I swear the actress was actually pregnant or something though

She killed herself IRL in 2007

Since I'm Swedish I have seen a lot (possibly all) episodes of Wallander. They show them like once a week here.

I know

She did have a baby though. I read somewhere it was because she was caught up in the Tsunami and never really came to terms with all the death and horror she saw, she only survived because she held onto her baby with one hand and a tree with the other

Oof, that is tough.

Thought she was brilliant in Wallander. And seeing her last episode... yeah.

I seen an episode of it on BBC4 ages ago and it was pretty sweet, forgot to watch it again though.

There was a documentary on thee BBC about Wallander and the books not that long ago and it looks as though the BBC is making their own Wallander series but it's going to be in English but it's still being filmed in Sweden so yeah, I need to keep an eye out for it. I just like listening to Swedish so it's already starting with a handicap though.

edit: I just checked the beebs websitye and series 2 is the BBC one but they show the Swedish one as well /confusion

The BBC already released their version on BBC1 in 2008, it's shit compared to the original.

The BBC also show/showed the original on BBC4. Much better
