As BBC 4 comes to the close of the re-run of Krister Henrikkson's second series as detective Kurt Wallander (created by Swedish author Henning Mankell), I can only say that, if you have a taste for this kind of stuff, you should perhaps consider the investment of the series on DVD?
Available in the last few months, beginning with the initial seven 90 - minute episodes of Henrikksen's first series (from production company Yellow Bird), this is - beyond the confines of genre - exemplary drama; intelligent script and direction, subtle tones of performance and theme.
All human life is there, I swear.
So - treat yourself.
Henrikkson's performance is truly captivating.
