Krister Henriksson brings Wallander alive for me. Sometimes I feel like he's speaking English, even as I read the subtitles because his face register so much emotion. With the slightest quirk of an eyebrow, you know this policeman is skeptical of a suspect's fabricated story, even before you read the words below. I had watched the English actor in one Wallander mystery and enjoyed it because I just like mysteries, but he seems to play the character as an absent-minded professor. After awhile his acting conveys bewilderment instead of focus. Henriksson never goes off bumbling. He is serious and professional, making the detective in the story believable,as well as entertaining. Thank goodness I discovered the Swedish version of Wallander.
