Yellow Bird series 2 begins 9 Jan with Hämnden (The Revenge)
Posted 2009-01-04
Krister Henriksson as Kurt WallanderYellow Bird's Wallander series is entering its second season on 9 January with the Swedish theatrical release of Hämnden (The Revenge). Krister Henriksson returns as Kurt Wallander for 13 new stories by Henning Mankell. After Hämnden, the remaining 12 films will be released on DVD in Sweden then later shown on television.

The characters of Ann-Britt Höglund, Linda Wallander and Stefan Lindman do not appear to be returning for various reasons. However two new recruits are joining the Ystad Police force, Sabina and Pontus, played by Nina Zanjani and Sverrir Gudnason respectively. Most of the other regular characters such as Martinsson, Svartman, Nyberg and Ebba will be back.

Be sure to watch these Swedish-language videos of Hämnden, including a trailer, behind the scenes feature and interviews from the premiere:
