Tomiwa Edun & Lisa Hammond join Adam Pålsson and Leanne Best When Young Wallander returns with a new case

Adam Pålsson (Moscow Noir, Don’t Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves) will return as Kurt Wallander, alongside Leanne Best (Black Mirror), Ellise Chappell (Poldark) and Yasen Atour (The Witcher: Season 2).

The new cast members joining the police force are ‘Tomiwa Edun (Merlin) as Superintendent Samuel Osei and Lisa Hammond (EastEnders) as Roberta Modin. Other new cast members include Josef Davies (The King), Lewis Mackinnon (Doctors) and Kim Adis (Get Even).

The English language drama is told over six new serialized episodes. Set in contemporary Sweden, Kurt Wallander is found adrift and uncertain of the future following his exit from the police force. An opportunity to re-join the Major Crimes Unit arises when a new Superintendent, Samuel Osei, takes on the leadership. He accepts the offer and is tasked with what seems to be a straightforward case: a hit-and-run outside a nightclub.

However, when the victim is found to be connected to an infamous murder case handled by Frida Rask eight years ago, Wallander quickly suspects that there is more to this incident than meets the eye. Determined to uncover the truth, he refuses to back off — even when the investigation leads him to the door of those who could end his career in a heartbeat.
