Netflix has dropped a trailer for Young Wallander, its prequel series to Swedish detective Kurt Wallander, previously depicted on screen by both Krister Henriksson and Kenneth Branagh.
Swedish actor Adam Pålsson (The Bridge) stars in the series based on Henning Mankell’s novels, as Wallander investigates his first case.
The story focuses on the formative experiences – professional and personal – faced by Kurt as a recently graduated police officer in his early twenties.
The English-language drama series is told over six serialised episodes and features both British and Swedish cast.
The cast also includes Richard Dillane (Superintendent Hemberg), Leanne Best (Frida Rask), Ellise Chappell (Mona) and Yasen Atour (Reza).
Friday September 3 on Netflix.
