More Wallander films available in Sweden, Germany and Spain
Posted 2006-07-19

A slew of new DVDs have become available to Wallander fans in the last few months.

For Sweden, Täckmanteln (The Container Lorry) and Luftslottet (The Castle Ruins) are the 9th and 10th entries in the 13 part Yellow Bird series with Krister Henriksson starring as Kurt Wallander. Täckmanteln is available now and Luftslottet is set to follow on 23 August.

Germany has received two double disc sets from the Yellow Bird series, with each set containing two films. Wallander Collection No. 1 includes Vor dem Frost (Innan frosten/Before the Frost) and Am Rande der Finsternis (Mörkret/The Darkness). Wallander Collection No. 2 includes Tod in den Sternen (Byfånen/The Village Idiot) and Ein Toter in Afrika (Afrikanen/The African).

Spanish fans can now purchase Pisando los talones (One Step Behind) and La leona blanca (The White Lioness), which means that every current Wallander film based on one of Henning Mankell's novels is now available in Spain.
