Young Wallander Season Two Cast Revealed

Netflix has revealed casting details for Young Wallander season two, which continues to follow the formative experiences of the iconic detective created by Henning Mankell as a recently graduated police officer in his early twenties.

In season two, Kurt Wallander (Adam Pålsson) is found adrift and uncertain of the future following his exit from the police force. An opportunity to re-join the Major Crimes Unit arises when a new Superintendent, Samuel Osei, takes on the leadership. Wallander accepts the offer and is tasked with what seems to be a straightforward case: a hit-and-run outside a nightclub.

However, when the victim is found to be connected to an infamous murder case handled by Frida Rask eight years ago, Wallander quickly suspects that there is more to this incident than meets the eye. Determined to uncover the truth, he refuses to back off – even when the investigation leads him to the door of those who could end his career in a heartbeat.

Leanne Best (Black Mirror), Ellise Chappell (Poldark) and Yasen Atour (The Witcher) will reprise their roles from season one and are joined by Tomiwa Edun (Merlin) as Superintendent Samuel Osei and Lisa Hammond (EastEnders) as Roberta Modin alongside Josef Davies (The King), Lewis Mackinnon (Doctors) and Kim Adis (Get Even). 

Adam Pålsson said: “I anticipate this new case to be even more vibrant, thrilling and gripping. We will go deeper and broader in the story and get to know Reza, Rask, Mona and other characters even more. It feels like we have found home now when we know the universe and characters better, what color palette to paint with and with which pencil.”

Young Wallander season two will launch on Netflix in 2022.
