BUFFALO, N.Y. – MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! presents the new “Wallander III” series on WNED-TV airing Sundays at 9 p.m. beginning Sept. 30.
Kenneth Branagh (My Week with Marilyn, Henry V, Hamlet) returns as Inspector Kurt Wallander, the moody Swedish detective, in three new 90-minutue whodunits. “Kenneth Branagh outdoes himself in series 3,” says MASTERPIECE Executive Producer Rebecca Eaton. “No one else matches him in sheer soul-stirring emotion. In our long list of favorite detectives, Kurt Wallander is one of the most fascinating.”
After an Emmy®- and Golden Globe®-nominated debut season in 2009, the second
“Wallander”series was judged just as gripping and refreshingly different as the first. USA Today hailed it as “an adult, modern MYSTERY! designed for those who want their murder stories to land somewhere between cozy and hopelessly dark.”
“Wallander III”finds the Swedish cop trying to improve his disposition—in the face of torture killings, dashed romance, homicidal do-gooders, and a resentful grown-up daughter.
