Judging from the information available on the internet, several of the  DVDs in the series contain interesting extras, such as the 30 minute "Documental en busca del Inspector Wallander" on La Quinta Mujer and "Documental el Mundo de Henning Mankell" on La falsa pista. The DVDs appear to be dubbed in Spanish and there are no signs of subtitles at this point.

You can find the complete series for sale at the web store.
