BBC4: PREMIERE Sunday 25 October, 10pm
Stubborn Stockholm cop Rolf Lassgård returns to Sweden’s inhospitable Norrland on a missing persons investigation that turns into a brutal murder case. Lassgård (TV’s original Kurt Wallander and Sebastian Bergman, too) surveys his old stamping ground with disdain in a gripping sequel to the 1996 Swedish hit, The Hunters. This is at least its equal (and stands alone), not least because the scary Peter Stormare is such a bewitching villain. The tone, too, seems less obviously melodramatic this time.
