“Young Wallander ss 2”: release date, announcement
In November 2020, the management of the TV series “Young Wallander” officially announced that viewers would see Season 2. Filming for the new episodes began in June 2021 and will premiere on February 17, 2022.
Kurt Wallander didn’t really dream of becoming a police officer, but it worked out the way it happened – he worked for the government, and quite well. His best friend had recently gotten a promotion, and now Kurt was waiting to be the next lucky one. Living not in the best area of the city, Wallander tried not to disclose who he worked, because he would immediately succumb to ridicule and beatings.
He lived in an apartment in a house where people of different nationalities lived. They did not like the police here, they believed that all the troubles constantly passed on to the refugees. The only people Kurt spoke to were a Negro woman next door and her son Ibra. The guy was very gifted, but his mother had to work hard to keep him away from this terrible atmosphere of hopelessness and easy money.
Kurt greatly appreciated the actions of his mother-neighbor. Thanks to her efforts, Ibra had a pretty good future. But one day he witnessed an emergency. On the soccer field in their block, someone tied a guy to a net and taped up his mouth. The poor guy desperately resisted, and the locals took pictures with him, like with an animal.
Deciding to end this mess, Wallander asks the crowd to part, showing the cop badge. While he is looking for those involved in this action, the unknown approached the tied poor fellow and tore the tape from his mouth. Kurt only has time to notice for a split second that the guy had a grenade in his mouth, which eventually blew his head off.
Having survived such a tragedy, Kurt decides to find the culprit by all means. This case shouldn’t be left to another cop. For Wallander, this matter becomes a priority, especially when the chief makes him the main one in the investigation and entrusts the most serious assignments. Kurt does not yet know how badly he got in and what obstacles await him on the way to the killer.
In the meantime, a local rich man is getting into the matter more and more, who decided that the police should provide him with all the information about the current state of affairs at the police station. While Wallander is injured in an alley, the rich man does not sit idly by. And soon he will show his true face…
