This website is dedicated to the BBC's English-language television series about Henning Mankell's fictional Swedish detective Kurt Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh.

There are also pages relating to the other Wallander portrayals, including actors KRISTER HENRIKSSON and ROLF LASSGÅRD, as well as many other items of interest to Wallander fans.

Please visit the page listings in the sidebar to the left to discover more about the series episodes, the filming locations, and the people involved. Please bookmark the site and re-visit often as this is an ongoing project with news and information added as often as possible.

This website is a purely personal creation, designed to share my total enjoyment of the Wallander novels, all the film, television and theatrical adaptations, and to spread the word to others.

This website and associated Facebook group (please see link at top of sidebar, left) is also a vehicle for sharing information, so please feel free to e-mail your questions, comments, images, information, or anything else you think relevant to me HERE.

I always credit sources where known.

To the best of my knowledge no residents of Ystad, or the region of Skåne, were hurt in the making of this website.

Thank you for your interest.

How many locations do you recognise?

Notes: This video is the result of the visit I made to Skåne back in August 2015. Getting to meet Emily Barker and working as her Location Manager was a fantastic experience.

Locations are colour-coded as follows:
BLUE = Visited and photographed
GREEN = Identified
AMBER = Unconfirmed
RED = Unidentified

In order to preserve the privacy of those who live in properties used for filming I do not reveal their addresses. Instead the [PRAW] (Private Residence Address Withheld) symbol will appear on the relevant page.

Researching of the filming locations for the four Kenneth Branagh seasons (a total of 12 episodes) will continue indefinitely, so please visit HERE for locations yet to be identified.

The final season locations are spread across Skåne (Sweden), Copenhagen (Denmark) and Cape Town (South Africa). If you can help in any way then please email me HERE.

Please be aware that there may be some links/pages that lead to/are dead-ends (no pun intended). This should only be a temporary situation during the research and update process.

Although I have the greatest admiration and respect for the production values resulting from their collaboration, please note that this site is NOT affiliated to the BBC, Left Bank Pictures, Yellow Bird SE, TKBC or the estate of Henning Mankell.

I have, however, steadily built a network of contacts and friends within these organisations - as well as being assisted by some extremely helpful members of the public - in order to present the most up-to-date and accurate information possible. All gratitude to them; any mistakes are mine.
