Yet no matter how dark the show is, or how stylishly shot, it is impossible to shake the feeling that Wallander's name here is just branding, fake ID. Impersonating a police officer, still a crime.

All of this could be forgiven if Young Wallander worked as a drama in its own right, but it's so inept that one can only assume these decisions form some sort of elaborate marketing strategy by Netflix.

The script treats the viewers like idiots, signposting every plot point and rolling out exposition in inert question-and-answer scenes. Someone literally says “the plot thickens” at one point. They’re not being ironic. Even the incidental dialogue, of which there is copious amounts, is stiff as a board.

Young Wallander ticks off its lead’s familiar attributes in checklist fashion, rarely pausing to offer more developed hints at psychological cause and correlation.
