The Netflix series is different than the many series adaptations of the novels because it is set in modern Sweden rather than the 90s. The character of Kurt Wallander is younger and fresh. He is still unaffected by his life’s problems and health issues that come in his middle age. So this show is definitely a new take on the life of Kurt Wallander never seen before.
In the first season, we saw Wallander horrified by the murder of a teenager. Because of that, he decides to quit his job. However, his inherent desire to be part of the police work will never allow him to leave the job. So in the next season, we can see him taking on more cases and solving them.
