Based on the bestselling books by Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell, detective Kurt Wallander is an intense and headstrong maverick, prone to eating poorly, sleeping irregularly and drinking too much. The final six Wallander films, released collectively on DVD this Monday (23 June), are currently airing on BBC Four, whose Saturday evening slot has been become synonymous with top-quality subtitled television. To celebrate the release of Wallander: Collected Films 27-32, we have THREE DVD to give away to our loyal readers courtesy of Nordic Noir Arrow Films. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
Krister Henriksson first reprised the role of Kurt Wallander in 2005, and he has since grown alongside his character to world-wide prominence. Wallander was the first major Scandinavian import for BBC Four. It started a chain-reaction that has seen the genre become one of the best-loved and most talked about in television culture. Following in Wallander’s footsteps were shows such as The Killing, Borgen and The Bridge, all of which have gone on to win BAFTAs and secure record viewing figures. Wallander has also paved the way for other foreign-language dramas, including the German sensation Generation War, French cop thriller Braquo and Israeli hostage drama Hatufim (Prisoners Of War).
