Notes: These scenes were shot at an old automobile repair and maintenance shop from 1928 in Hammenhög village. Part of the building had served as a flower shop when Henning Mankell wrote THE FIFTH WOMAN and, since a murder victim is a flower shop owner, it was convenient to shoot in the then abandoned building.
Notes: In 2012 the shop had been re-opened as per images below.
Notes: In 2015 the shop now appears to be being used to live in.
