Swedish inspector Kurt Wallander (Kenneth Branagh) is finally happy. He's making a fresh start, moving into his new home with his girlfriend, Vanja, and even, quite possibly, getting a new ringtone. But before he has a chance, his phone issues its chilling ring; the remains of young woman who disappeared from a ferry have washed ashore. And then his new beginning is finally terminated when his dog unearths the skeleton of a murdered young woman from a shallow grave in his yard. The brutality of his world has intruded, and despite his panicked efforts to expunge it, tracking down a violent former resident of his house, he only makes things horrifyingly, heartbreakingly, worse. Can the corpse in his yard be connected to the remains of the other young woman? And can Wallander ever recover from his colossal misstep and its devastating cost? Adapted from Henning Mankell's short story "The Grave", An Event in Autumn showcases the tenderness and torment of our hero as he closes in on a vicious killer. Saskia Reeves (Page Eight) co-stars.
