Join forces with Kurt Wallander in Ystad
Are you ready to step up to the plate and solve a murder? Head out on this Wallander-themed walking tour through Ystad to put your detective skills to the test! Experience this idyllic coastal town in a brand new way while you try to impress your police colleagues!
It is a chilly spring morning in 1988. Detective Chief Inspector Kurt Wallander is having breakfast at Fridolf’s cafe in Ystad when he is alerted by his colleague Martinsson that a local photographer has been found brutally murdered. The events of the murder are curious, and it becomes even more strange when Wallander finds a photo album that contains a grotesquely distorted image of himself at the crime scene.
A self-guided walking tour
This self guided audio walking tour has been created in cooperation with Leopard publishing. It is based on the short story “The Death of the Photographer”. It helps you trace the footsteps of Henning Mankell’s well known character Kurt Wallander through Ystad as he is trying to solve the murder of photographer Simon Lamberg. The tour starts at Sankt Knuts square and guides you to locations that are important in the Wallander universe, such as his favorite cafe and the apartment building where he lives. One of Wallander’s colleagues wants to test your police detective skills, and assigns you to solve the case. Maybe you have a future as a crime investigator ahead of you? It doesn’t matter if the Wallander novels are among your favorite stories or if you have never read them before. We promise, you’ll have an experience out of the ordinary either way!
