James Moriarty possesses the greatest criminal mind that the world has ever seen. Sherlock and John knew he wouldn't stay hidden for long. But even they never guessed the sheer scale and audacity of the crime that would propel Moriarty back into the headlines. The crime of the century. The Tower of London, the Bank of England and Pentonville prison -- all sprung open on the same day, as if by magic! But Moriarty's plans don't stop there. Sherlock and John lock horns with their old enemy in one final problem that tests loyalty and courage to their very limits. Sherlock must fight for his reputation, his sanity and his life. But is he all he claims to be?

Wallander, Series III - Before The Frost (Episode #4218H)
KQED Plus: Fri, Apr 22, 2016 -- 9:30 PM
An escapee from a psychiatric hospital sets fire to a flock of geese and then incinerates a passing hiker. And he's far from finished. While investigating, Wallander is unexpectedly visited by Anna, an old friend of his estranged daughter, Linda (Jeany Spark, "Sherlock"). Then Anna disappears. As more arson attacks occur, it appears that Anna may be connected and that Wallander must reconcile with Linda and join forces to find Anna at all costs. Father-daughter concord is hardly helped by Linda's memory that her dad once had an affair with Anna's mother.

He reports back to headquarters and then disappears. After learning of the major's death, Wallander goes to Riga and meets his widow, Kristina (Rebekah Staton, "Tess of the D'Urbervilles").

A pregnant woman leaps to her death from the side of a ferry. Or was she pushed? The routine case barely disturbs Wallander's newly blissful life with Vanja (Saskia Reeves, "Page Eight"). But the happy couple discovers the decade-old corpse of a murdered woman on their property. With Wallander's work now getting too close to home, he follows the leads of two investigations that become increasingly entangled. On top of it, tragedy strikes one of his colleagues and Wallander blames himself - with good reason.
