Masterpiece Episode: "Wallander: The Man Who Smiled"

Season 40, Episode 28
Episode Synopsis: The rewarding "Wallander: The Man Who Smiled" finds the cop on leave and battling a major depression in the aftermath of having killed a man, and investigating the circumstances surrounding a friend's father's death, a request he initially rebuffed but, after his friend's apparent suicide, feels compelled to complete. The case leads to a philanthropist (Rupert Graves) and two persons trying to blackmail him, and unfolds at a languid pace that mirrors the lifting of Wallander's depression.
