Netflix has released the official trailer for their upcoming crime drama series titled Young Wallander, featuring Adam Pålsson as he takes on the titular role that was previously played by Oscar nominee Kenneth Branagh and fellow Swedish actor Krister Henriksson. The six-part prequel series will be available for streaming on Thursday, September 3. Check out the video below!
A reimagining of author Henning Mankell’s mystery novels, the new prequel series tells the story of Kurt Wallander in his early 20s which will center around his formative experiences – professional and personal as he takes on his first-ever case. After recently graduating from the police academy, he suddenly witnesses a brutal crime and is pulled into solving it under the wing of superintendent Hemberg.
Young Wallander will be starring Adam Pålsson, Richard Dillane, Leanne Best, and Ellise Chappell. It is directed by Ole Endresen and Jens Jonsson from a script written by Ben Harris. Berna Levin is also producing the series.
Based on Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell’s Kurt Wallander novel series, the titular protagonist has appeared in eleven novels including 1997’s Faceless Killers, 2000’s The Fifth Woman, and 2011’s The Troubled Man which were all translated to the English language. The novel series was first adapted into a Swedish TV series titled Wallander which ran and was later on-air for three seasons from 2005-2013. It was then later adapted by BBC One which starred Kenneth Branagh as the titular police inspector and lasted for four seasons from 2008-2016.
