Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: "The Revenge" is well-made, above-average TV, but it seems small for the big screen. The plot is a bit predictable, and we're still getting to know the characters when the story ends. – Rachel Saltz, New York Times, May 31, 2012

Fresh: "The Revenge" is a smooth-enough entertainment that should appeal to Wallander completists and aficionados of the cresting wave of Scandinavian crime stories. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Jun 7, 2012

Rotten: On the whole this is a routine mystery tale existing mainly to introduce new characters to the Wallander universe and allow for future installments. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, May 29, 2012

Fresh: An old-fashioned, taut, well-crafted thriller-complete with several wonderful twists. – Ernest Hardy, Village Voice, May 29, 2012

Excellent low keyed better than British remake

Great acting, well done, low key production worth renting....

Excellence continues

This is an astonishing well done series. The interplay amongst the characters is great, acting is top notch, and the stories are very contemporary.


Good plot and interesting locale. Not a great movie but gripping and worth seeing.
