Known the world over for his portrayal of the iconic detective Kurt Wallander in the Swedish TV series Wallander, Krister Henriksson (Modus), joins Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan in the thrilling final chapter of the critically-acclaimed and award-winning The Fall.

The Fall S1The BBC haven’t released details yet about Henriksson’s character in the series, but I will scream with joy if he shows up as Wallander, coming out of his self-imposed retirement to lend a hand to DS Stella Gibson’s (Anderson) investigation of serial killer Paul Spector (Dornan), who’s in a rather bad state in the Series 2 cliffhanger. If not, I’ll still be thrilled to see Henriksson on telly again.

(The Beeb has screened all versions of Wallander — the original Swedish-language films starring Rolf Lassgärd, Henriksson’s series, and Kenneth Branagh’s UK series.)

Other actors joining the Series 3 cast of The Fall include Aidan McArdle (Mr Selfridge), Ruth Bradley (Humans), Aisling Bea (The Delivery Man), and Richard Coyle (Crossbones). Series regulars who reprise their roles for the third series include Colin Morgan (The Living and the Dead), John Lynch (The Trials of Jimmy Rose), Valene Kane (Thirteen), Stuart Graham (The Frankenstein Chronicles), Bronagh Waugh (Hollyoaks), and Aisling Franciosi (Quirke).

For Euro TV fans who are new to, or want to revisit, The Fall, Series 1 and 2 are currently streaming at Amazon Video in the UK and Netflix in the US.
