    I dont agree,I detest Henning Mankells Wallander and all that gloom which perpetuates a totally misleading impression of Sweden and the Swedes but I really love Åke Edwardsons Chief Inspector Winter,however,you have been warned, DONT WHATEVER YOU DO let the Brits get hold of them. They cant even pronounce Wallander properly let alone anything else such as place names
