[via press release from PBS]

Wallander III from the bestselling mystery series by Henning Mankell On MASTERPIECE Mystery!

Sundays, September 9-23, 2012, 9 to 10:30pm ET on PBS

Kenneth Branagh (My Week with Marilyn, Henry V, Hamlet) returns as Inspector Kurt Wallander, the moody Swedish detective created by mystery writer Henning Mankell, who famously lit the spark for today's passionate interest in Scandinavian crime fiction.

An Event in Autumn - Sunday, September 9, 2012 at 9pm ET

A pregnant woman leaps to her death from the side of a ferry. Or was she pushed? The routine case barely disturbs Wallander's newly blissful life with Vanja (Saskia Reeves, Page Eight), his lover from the end of series 2. But then the happy couple discovers a decade-old corpse of a murdered woman on their property. With Wallander's work now getting too close to home, he follows the leads of two investigations that get increasingly entangled. On top of it, tragedy strikes one of his colleagues, and Wallander blames himself - with good reason.

The Dogs of Riga - Sunday, September 16, 2012 at 9pm ET

A raft adrift in Swedish waters has a grisly cargo: two horribly tortured Latvian corpses. Arriving to investigate from Latvia's capital, Riga, is an enigmatic police major. He reports back to headquarters and then disappears. After hearing reports of his death, Wallander goes to Riga and meets the major's wife, Kristina (Rebekah Staton, Tess of the D'Urbervilles). Together, they get embroiled in a desperate search for files that may document high-level corruption that threatens to make Wallander and Kristina the next victims.

Before the Frost - Sunday, September 23, 2012 at 9pm ET

An escapee from a psychiatric hospital sets fire to a flock of geese and then incinerates a passing hiker. And he's far from finished. While investigating, Wallander is unexpectedly visited by Anna, an old friend of his estranged daughter, Linda (Jeany Spark). Then Anna disappears. As the arson attacks mount, it appears that Anna may be connected. Duty demands that Wallander reconcile with Linda and join forces to find Anna at all costs. But father-daughter concord is hardly helped by Linda's memory that her dad once had an affair with Anna's mother.
