Returning: Wallander

ABC1 airs new eps of Kenneth Branagh as Kurt Wallander in the third season this Sunday night.

It begins with “An Event In Autumn”, directed by Toby Haynes of Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Being Human fame. This is the first of three investigations.

The series will end with with the fourth season next year.

Kurt Wallander moves into a dream home with his girlfriend, Vanya. It’s a new start for both of them. But Wallander’s happiness is cut painfully short when his dog unearths a skeleton buried under a fruit tree in the back garden. Wallander tries to keep his life on track by getting the case solved as quickly as possible, but his first suspicions lead him in the wrong direction and into a very dangerous situation for himself and his colleagues.

As the same time, a disembodied arm is found washed up on the beach at Ystad. It belonged to a young girl who either jumped off the ferry from Poland, or was pushed.

Wallander finds himself having to investigate two tragic cases: one a shadowy murder that happened long ago; the other looks like it might be the first in a series.

8:30pm Sunday on ABC1.
