Swedish Yellow Bird DVDs no longer have English subtitles
Posted 2009-12-28
Krister Henriksson as Kurt WallanderIt is bad news for English-speaking fans of the Kurt Wallander series, but from #18 onwards, the Yellow Bird series of Kurt Wallander DVDs will no longer include English subtitles. Yellow Bird hasn't commented on the change other than to say they are working to get local distributors in English-speaking countries to carry the series.

Meanwhile, the series continues to make good progress in Sweden. The DVD for film #21 was recently released with #22 scheduled for 20 Jan, 2010. The series will wrap up after the 26th film is released in June 2010.
