This week, we’re excited to announce the release of our Wallander tour of Ystad, which is based on Henning Mankell’s short story The Death of the Photographer. Join us in Ystad and step into this exciting crime story. Roll up your sleeves and get ready to do some real detective work!
A photographer is found murdered at his studio. Soon after, Kurt Wallander discovers a photo album, filled with portraits of public figures whose faces have been manipulated and distorted. What did the introvert photographer have against those people? Why is his widow so reluctant to talk to the investigators? And who is the woman who visits his daughter? Kurt Wallander is thrown into an intricate murder investigation which eventually culminates in a violent confrontation.
Based on Henning Mankell’s short story The Death of the Photographer, the Wallander tour of Ystad is an interactive experience where you take on the role of a police detective recruit. While walking between the key places of the story, you map out the whereabouts of the suspect, collect clues and gather evidence – until you’re able to piece everything together and reveal the murderer.
The one-and-a-half-hour self-guided audio tour takes you through the cobbled streets of the picturesque coastal town Ystad, where you make stops at Wallander’s home on Mariagatan and his favorite café Fridolf’s, among other places you’ll recognize from the movies and tv-series.
