Now the British will get in contact with our belowed decetive Wallander and the Swedish “Midsomer District” Ystad and Österlen. The Wallander crime scene is located with the most beautiful scenery as a background. Tourists from all over the world visit this new must-see site for international visitors in Sweden.

Left Bank Pictures Head of Televisionin UK, Francis Hopkinson, said: “These are fantastic stories set in a beautiful and rarely seen part of the world. Southern Sweden is a stunning place to film and the location will lend a magical quality to this unique production.”

“The Henning Mankell novels are well loved around the world and have a depth and complexity which will make for exciting and compulsive viewing. We couldn’t hope for a stronger team behind the project, nor could we hope for a more perfect leading man than Kenneth Branagh.”

Anne Mensah, Head of Drama for BBC Scotland, adds: “Wallander is an extremely ambitious project – after all we’re looking to create an classic new detective character for British television. 

The drama will be adapted from Swedish author Henning Mankell’s critically acclaimed Kurt Wallander Mysteries – an international publishing phenomenon with over 25 million copies sold worldwide.

In Ystad the whole town are now a Wallander city with activities for groups, incentives and tours in the foot step of Wallander. However – there is a bit crowded during summer seasons but with short the distance to Malmö and Copenhagen, only 30-50 minutes by car or train, it is ok also for one sightseeing day. I must confess that Ystad and the surroundig landscape is one of my favorite sites in Skane!
