When Manfred Stjarne is stabbed to death outside the Brada cider factory his wife Claire has inherited - suspicion falls on Polish worker Jan Kowalski, with whose wife Manfred was having an affair, but Jan is found hanged - later evidence suggesting foul play. Benjamin Wilkes, an ex-psychologist who helped Manfred select redundancy candidates, is killed in the same way as Manfred, putting disgruntled ex-Brada employees in the frame, but a third slaying implicates a former patient of Wilkes, who has connections to the Stjarne family. A newly loved-up Isabelle and Pontius start to fool around whilst on surveillance, taking their eye off the ball and allowing this suspect to confront Claire. Written by don @ minifie-1

Dull, chaotic
19 August 2011 | by bob998See all my reviews

Thursday nights on Tele-Quebec have been filled for the last few years by the Wallander series. The early shows from 2005-2006 were interesting enough, but the 2010 season is a bust. The stories are chaotic and banal--Mankell was not the author--and the acting, camera-work and production values are not up to the standard we demand from European TV. Krister Henriksson seems tired and increasingly uninterested in his work, and that is the actor I'm talking about and not the character. Lena Endre seems to be in the cast because she made a film with Bergman and adds some star quality to the rather mediocre line-up.

Arvet (The Heritage) is poorly made, with brackish camera work and poor acting. The two rookie cops, Pontus and Isabelle, are more than a little annoying, and in a well-run police department would never get permanent status. The story is not worth telling; it hardly makes sense. Cinema buffs of a certain age will note that Bjorn Andresen, the pretty boy from Death In Venice, is in the cast.
