Writing, acting, realisation, everything deserves a 10 but there is something more to Wallander. There is something unexplicably touching in this character, maybe the fact that he cannot reach happiness but refuses to give up trying completely. He is just plainly human and touches our humanity.
Not having had the chance to see Kenneth Branagh on stage, I had never quite understood while he gathered such recognition and neither "Much ado about nothing" nor "Thor" had managed to convinced me. But I undestand now and I am convinced. He is absolutely amazing in this role.
