Wallander is the new Masterpiece Mystery series, with Kenneth Branagh. It's beautifully shot (in Sweden). The first episode they gave us really starts out intense. Serious chills. If you like cop drama kinda stuff with family issues thrown in, and don't get sick at the sight of blood, this is for you.
From the panel discussion at the PBS press tour I gathered that there are several books and that at least 3 more will be produced with Keneth Branagh. I believe some or all of them have been done in Sweden.
It premieres Sunday, May 10th at 9pm on PBS of course
