Adam Pålsson plays the titular character, who is left traumatised by the horrific – and public death – of a teen, who is strapped to the fence of a football pitch with a hand grenade in his mouth.
As Kurt moves the shocked and horrified onlookers back, a blast can be heard, before the trailer reveals what happens in the aftermath, including riots, weapons deals, explosions and stabbings.
At one point, Kurt’s boss says: “I want Wallander on the case, he lives here, he has connections here.”
Kurt struggles with the magnitude of the task ahead of him, only to be told by his boss: “It’s time to ask yourself how much you want to be a detective.”
Kurt starts to gather clues, and he informs a colleague: “Hugo’s murder was carefully choreographed to look a certain way, to escalate a greater conflict.”
As the riots and confrontations flash on screen, Kurt is then seen speaking to an associate on a housing estate and says: “This came from the outside, help me find out who it was.”
As he delves deeper into who was behind the murder, a female colleague warns: “Cases like this will take everything that you have.”
The voiceover adds: “This job is full of tough choices.”
The story focuses on the formative experiences – professional and personal – faced by Kurt as a recently graduated police officer in his early twenties.
The English-language drama series is told over six serialized episodes and features both British and Swedish cast.
Adam is joined by Richard Dillane (Superintendent Hemberg), Leanne Best (Frida Rask) and Ellise Chappell (Mona).
Young Wallander will premiere on Netflix on Thursday, September 3.
