Branagh as Wallander. I'ev always hoped for a TV version of these books, but Kenneth Branagh? Why. Jesus.

I actually think that Branagh would be a little bit too sophisticated as Wallander, I for one would prefer Albert Finney in the role. The only problem is that the series starts in 1990 at which time Wallander is 42.
We have lived in the Ystad area for the last 2 years and it is great to be familiar with all the places mentioned in the books.
The Swedish movies were also great
