From A. Koch, Germany:
Yellow Bird Films is currently recording film material for "Dogs of Riga".
From 26th of August until 29th of August 2011 they take records at original locations near Ystad.
I saw the film crew with Kenneth Branagh working on a small cottage in Svarte, near Mossbystrand (geolocation 55.419394,13.673301). At this location the outdoor shots of Wallanders home are being produced.
The outdoor production base was situated on the parking area directly at Mossbystrand.
At this beach they will also produce other scenes for "Dogs of Riga".
That is absolutely great news. Here are some images of the 'small cottage':
