Masterpiece Episode: "Wallander: The Fifth Woman"

Season 40, Episode 29
Episode Synopsis: 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. As his faltering father tells him, "you don't look at the world, you just drive straight through it." 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.
