Based on original stories from immensely popular Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell, Wallander follows the titular chief inspector Kurt Wallander (Krister Henriksson) as he investigates crimes and solves mysteries in the deceptively dark underbelly of picturesque modern Sweden.
"The Revenge" begins with Kurt Wallander having achieved his life's dream - buying a house by the sea. Suddenly, a heavy explosion ruptures the peace and quiet in Ystad when the town's single transformer station is blown up, and more explosive deeds follow. The military is called and the little town starts to look like a war zone. Are the explosions acts of sabotage or terrorism? Everything is chaos and Wallander fumbles in darkness as he tries to chase down the culprits.
