Photographs from Ystad
Vacation snaps from Tschaka.de

I stumbled across someone's online photo album from what looks like a vacation in Sweden. There are some nice pictures of Ystad's old town and coastline. Other places included are areas in and around the cities of Trelleborg, Kåseberga, Kristianstad, Kalmar, Nyköping and Stockholm. There are plenty of shots of Swedish castles. I hope you like these as much as I did.

Vacation snaps from Matthias Schlecker

Reader Matthias Schlecker from Germany has posted pictures from his visit to Ystad on his web site. Also, be sure to view photographs of the actual Ystad police headquarters from Matthias Horn on the web site of Zsolnay, the German-language publisher for Mr Mankell. Lastly, the web site wallander-web.de features a similar series of photographs of Ystad.
