Wallander: Before The Frost (BBC-1 22 July 2012, Lindsay Duncan)

Published

on

In Before The Frost Wallander is asked for help by a friend of Linda, his daughter. However before he can help the girl disappears, meanwhile he has his hands full when the cremated body of an elderly lady is found in a shallow grave. The murder appears to be the work of someone with an obsession with religion.

In the original novel Linda has decided to enter the police force and the investigation is mostly carried out by her with Wallander often on the sidelines but the actual plot remains substantially the same.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
