Directed byHenning Mankell

Year: 2008-2012

Plot: String of grisly murders in otherwise placid and picturesque Swedish town forces detective Wallander to stop wallowing in his own mid-life crisis.

Pros: Kenneth Branagh’s brooding, boozing and fighting hangovers detective is positively Scandinavian.  The bags under his eyes are more expressive than the entire cast of ‘Glee’.

Cons: We’d like a touch more of police procedural and touch less of a middle-age dude feeling like a used condom.
