This is essentially a story about how Wallander became and earned his chops as a detective. The biggest issue i have with this is that this appears to be happening in the now where the actual original Wallander series already happened in the past - just a little odd time-juxtaposition going on here.


As a big fan of the original Wallander I must say that I really enjoyed this first season. Okay, itโ€™s not even close to the original (but no series can imo) but as I said: I liked it. And if watched closely you can even see the characteristics of the later so famous old Wallander.


I love me some Scandicrime but this was a drag to watch.


It's enjoyable, I understand the low ratings, but for me the biggest bummer was the[spoiler] plain ending, which did not really grasp me, it might as well pass as an ending of an ordinary episode.[/spoiler]


hummmm i wonder why the low rating ( sarcasm )


Where the most of human beings read "Young Wallander", the actor playing Wallander reads "Expressionless Robotic Wallander".


[Netflix] The reference to the character created by Henning Mankell is just marketing. There is little or nothing of Wallander, whose youth is occasionally mentioned in the novels, to which there is no reference in the show. Regardless of the anachronism of setting the action in the present, it is a less "Nordic" (the characters speak English) and less "noir" than usual Nordic noir, conventional and frankly boring.


So Boring!. It feels like Iโ€™ve seen over a dozen series with the same mediocre storyline.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
