Discover the setting for the BBC’s Kurt Wallander detective series in Skåne
Internationally acclaimed Swedish author Henning Mankell is set to become a household name in the UK following the BBC adaptation of his bestseller crime novels featuring inspector Kurt Wallander, which hit our screens at the end of last year.
The series was directed by BAFTA nominated Philip Martin who was behind Prime Suspect and produced by and starred Kenneth Brannagh. A new series is being planned for 2009 with filming taking place in the picturesque town of Ystad in Skåne, the southernmost province of Sweden. Mankell fans can book a Wallander Break which includes accommodation, dinner and refreshments in well-known Wallander settings from SEK 810 (approximately £68) per person, per night. To book, visit www.ystad.se.
