False Trail


(2011) ★★★½

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.
