Krister Henriksson, who is best know as Wallander in Henning Mankell's widely praised Swedish TV series is making his West End debut in Doktor Glas, which transfers to London following its acclaimed run in Sweden.
Doktor Glas tells the story of a 19th century physician who falls madly in love with the beautiful young wife of a corrupt clergyman. When she confides in him that her marriage is making her miserable, he agrees to help in whatever way he can. Soon Doktor Glas finds himself torn between his passion and his morality, and drives the play towards its shocking climax.
Doktor Glas will run at the Wyndhams Theatre in London from 16 April to 11 May 2013.
