Kenneth Branagh stars as detective Kurt Wallander in thrilling adaptations of three best-selling crime novels by Henning Mankell.

Wallander: Sidetracked / Firewall / One Step Behind 

. Starring Kenneth Branagh as Kurt Wallander, a hard-working cop with a strong sense of integrity. Based in the small town of Ystad, Sweden, this series consists of three compelling murder mysteries based on the award-winning and phenomenally popular novels by Henning Mankell. In Sidetracked, an apparent suicide and the brutal murder of a former politician compete for the detective's attention. In Firewall two seemingly separate incidents - a heart attack victim and the brutal murder of a cab driver - lead to one conspiracy that stretches beyond the borders of Sweden. And in One Step Behind, three teenagers are murdered, each with a bullet to the head. When one of Wallander's colleagues is found - murdered in exactly the same way - Wallander must discover the connection.... Episode 1: Sidetracked
What connects the shocking suicide of a young woman and the vicious murder of a government minister? Inspector Kurt Wallander’s investigation uncovers wrongdoing and corruption that extends to the heart of the Swedish establishment. In a field full of bright yellow rapeseed, a teenage girl is seen wandering alone. Inspector Kurt Wallander is called to investigate. Before his eyes, the girl douses herself in petrol and burns to death. Her actions leave Wallander shocked, disturbed and baffled. A hunt for the girl’s identity begins. On the home front, Wallander, recently estranged from his wife, has moved into his own place. Linda, his grown-up daughter, is keeping an eye on her dad as he adjusts to bachelor life. Wallander’s relationship with his own father, Povel, is difficult and, as it becomes clear that Povel’s health is in decline, Wallander strives for a reconciliation with him. Meanwhile, Wallander’s workload soars as three apparently motiveless murders are committed. The victims are all male: a former minister of justice, a small-time criminal and a rich playboy. All are viciously killed, their scalps inexplicably taken. Wallander and his team investigate, determined to discover who the killer is and how these murders are connected.

Episode 2: Firewall
The death of man from a heart attack and the apparently unrelated murder of a taxicab driver leads Wallander to a conspiracy that stretches far beyond the borders of Sweden. A man’s body is found at a cash machine, the apparent victim of heart attack. Later, two teenage girls are arrested for the brutal murder of a cab driver. The girls confess to the crime and show no remorse whatsoever. Two open-and-shut cases. At first, these two incidents seem to have nothing in common but, as Wallander delves deeper into the mystery of why the girls murdered the cab driver, he begins to unravel a plot much more complicated than he initially suspected. The two cases become one and lead to a conspiracy that stretches to far beyond the borders of Sweden, as anarchic cyber-terrorists threaten to bring chaos and destruction to the developed world.

Episode 3: One Step Behind
Three young friends are shot in a wood during an elaborate Midsummer’s Eve picnic. Then one of Inspector Wallander’s colleagues is also found murdered. Is this the same killer, and what could the connection be? It is Midsummer’s Eve. In the woods a party of three young adults, in period fancy dress, enjoy a picnic. Through the trees a lone assassin, armed with a gun, approaches… A mother, slightly hysterical, arrives at the police station. She has received a postcard – her daughter has gone to Europe with two friends, on a whim. The three were last seen heading off to the woods for a Midsummer’s Eve picnic. Inspector Kurt Wallander wonders what the problem is; presumably the handwriting is the daughter’s? Wallander’s colleague, Svedberg, is murdered at home, shot at close range. As details about Svedberg’s personal life emerge, Wallander wonders how well he really knew him. He seems to have been involved with the missing youths from the picnic, but it’s not clear how. Back in the woods, the bodies of the three friends are discovered, all shot at close range. A fourth girl who was meant to attend the picnic is assassinated while in Wallander’s care and, shortly afterwards, a newlywed couple falls prey to the assassin’s gun. The assassin plans his murders with meticulous precision, relying on knowledge that is secret to everyone except his victims. How is he privy to this information? Wallander must track a killer who always seems to be one step ahead – and who seems to be following Wallander as much as Wallander is following him.. Episode 1: Sidetracked
