8:30pm – Friday, January 6 on Seven
After killing a man in the line of duty, Wallander finds himself spiralling into depression.
He has just decided to leave the police when an old friend, Sten Torstensson, a solicitor, approaches him to investigate the recent death of his father in a car accident. At first, Kurt dismisses his friend’s suspicions about the accident as unlikely, but Sten explains that the keys to the vehicle were found outside the car, raising Wallander’s suspicions.
A report explains that the keys had fallen from the ignition, something that could never have happened if his father had smashed the car while driving. Sten begs him to look into the case but, as interested as he might be, Wallander is still fragile and dismisses the case.
Wallander later learns that his solicitor friend has been found dead – a possible suicide – and realises that he was wrong not to listen. Against his better judgement, a troubled Wallander returns to work to head what may now have become a double murder case.
An enigmatic big-business tycoon who hides behind tight security seems to be the common denominator in the two deaths…
WALLANDER stars KENNETH BRANAGH as Kurt Wallander, SARAH SMART as Anne-Brit Hoglund, JEANY SPARK as Linda Wallander, TOM HILDDLESTON as Martinsson and DAVID WARNER as Povel Wallander, with special guests Rupert Graves and Angela Thorne.
