Telemystery: Wallander Returns for a Final Season Sunday, May 8th on PBS

Wallander (PBS)

The final season of Wallander premieres Sunday, May 8th on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery!

Kenneth Branagh stars as Inspector Kurt Wallander, based on a character created by crime novelist Henning Mankell, and from the beginning, his days have always seemed numbered. Dealing with northern Europe's most violent and deranged criminals, Wallander also battles personal demons and appalling health habits, which led him to be diagnosed with diabetes. Now, as he starts to lose his memory, his greatest fear is that he is succumbing to the same disease that felled his father: Alzheimer's. Branagh's portrayal of this terrifying struggle is a hearbreaking performance.

Returning with Branagh in the final season are longtime ensemble members Jeany Spark as Wallander's daughter, Linda, now married and a mother, bringing a ray of light to her detective dad, who makes a very doting grandfather; and Richard McCabe as the gloomy but good-hearted forensic pathologist, Sven Myberg.

Watch a preview to the season, below.
