Video: How Do the Discs Look?
These 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfers are just about as solid as one could expect. These standard-def presentations milk the format for all it's worth, rendering its elements with wonderful results. Detail quality is punchy and well-defined, black levels are sturdy from top to bottom, and color accuracy seems appropriate and nuanced (both flesh tones and more saturated hues are clean and vivid). Compression artifacting isn't an issue, either. Aside from a Blu-ray bump, these are fine-looking affairs.
Audio: How Do the Discs Sound?
The Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mixes included on Wallander 3's TV-on-DVD set are also perfectly accomplished. Dialogue is audible in every sequence, and music and atmospherics work together to make for a wonderfully lived-in and immersive sonic experience. Fidelity is dynamic, to boot, and effects are presented cleanly.
English SDH subtitles are included.
