Who was Young Kurt in the series? What kind of personality did he possess?
Young Kurt is a detective who works for the Police Department and has joined recently. He often clashes with senior officers over petty issues or about other team members too. Young Kurt’s major flaw is that, at times, his judgment gets influenced by emotions and he becomes impulsive which leads to disastrous consequences. All these flaws make Young Wallander an interesting character to watch out for as we have seen all this earlier in the older version of Detective Wallender.
What is the storyline of the series?
The storyline revolves around detective Kurt who is trying his best to solve crimes. But he gets caught up in family dramas as well. He faces many challenges mostly because he does not really have support from senior police officers or other team members at work. It is due to some personal grudges they hold against him.
Season one Recap
In season one Kurt Wallander is seen struggling initially with his new job, but he soon starts to make progress with solving crimes. The story takes us through the investigations of many cases including two murder cases involving a teenager Malmo and his colleague Hemberg. He is devastated and quits his job. Kurt is finally happy quitting his job at the police department. Young Wallander Season Two will pick up from where season one left off.
Expected Plot for Young Wallander Season two?
The second installment might bring back Kurt to the Police Department. We have to wait and watch what makes him join back his job. He may face challenges like before because he often clashes with senior officers over petty issues or about other team members too
The number of episodes
Season two will six episodes just like its predecessor.
What were the criticisms faced by the series when season one was premiered?
The lack of Swedish actors in the series except for the lead role drew many criticisms. The series was filmed in London rather than Sweden. The actors in the series spoke English with a London accent. These were the reasons Young Wallander Season one faced many criticisms.
Why do I recommend watching the upcoming series?
I have watched season one on Netflix. In my opinion, Young Wallander’s second installment will be better than its first part. The story has been developed well in this half-season too which makes me excited to see what happens next with Kurt. I highly recommend this upcoming series as well because Mankell’s novels have always been interesting to read/ watch especially if it’s about crime or mystery genre etc. The lead actor did an amazing job portraying the role of Detective Chief Inspector Kurt Wallender. Therefore you will not be disappointed by watching the upcoming series.
