Season 40, Episode 28 Wallander: The Fifth Woman

First Aired: October 17, 2010

The suspenseful "Wallander: The Fifth Woman" finds the Swedish cop investigating a possible serial killer, whose brutal murders of older men amount to "public executions," while facing the barren landscape that's become his life.

The point's further driven home during an unexpected reunion with his ex-wife and the case itself; even the victims, who bullied women, weren't as alone as he is.
