Wallander Classic

The last season of Wallander starts with The White Lioness.  Despite being on PBS (from the BBC), it is an unflinching look at leftist economics and the impact it has on South Africa.  It is about an old communist who has become a government minister and his protege who is running for office on a spread the wealth platform.  There is a missing Swedish woman that brings Wallander into the case.  We include no spoilers because you need to see it.  You will be impressed and depressed at the same time.

It was adapted from the book.   We don’t know if the original had the same viewpoint.  There are great conservative works of art.  Even on TV.  Even from BBC and PBS.  Do you think it was a mistake?
