Masterpiece Episode: "Wallander: Faceless Killers"

Season 40, Episode 27
Episode Synopsis: The taut "Wallander: Faceless Killers" finds the weary Swedish cop(Kenneth Branagh) with his hands full: his dad is slipping further into dementia, he has mixed feelings about his daughter's Syrian beau, and he's working the slaying of an elderly couple at their isolated home. To make matters worse, the dying woman's last utterance has been leaked to the press as "foreign" (though she may well have said "farm"), leading to vigilante reprisals against migrant workers.

Premise: PBS's longest running (and most honored) dramatic series is an Anglophile's delight, featuring British adaptations of literary classics and original works. The first `Masterpiece' was `The First Churchills,' and since then it has won nine Peabodys and 29 Emmys (beginning with Susan Hampshire's Best Actress award for `Churchills'). Its many memorable productions include `Upstairs, Downstairs,' `I, Claudius,' 'The Jewel in the Crown,' `House of Cards,' `Poldark' and `Prime Suspect.'
