Ystads Allehanda launches "Wallander's Ystad" web site
Posted 2006-04-18
Ystad's popular newspaper, Ystads Allehanda, has launched a mini web site dedicated to Mankell's novels. The site is titled Wallander's Ystad and is available in Flag of the United Kingdom English, Flag of Sweden Swedish and Flag of Germany German languages.

One of the best features on the site is an interactive map of Ystad and surrounding communities. Visitors can see a multimedia tour of the places featured in the novels as well as locations used in the many Wallander films. They even point out where Mankell has taken artistic license with buildings in Ystad. Each of the locations is detailed with photographs and a text and audio tour.

Also, if you'd like some pictures of Ystad to use as your computer desktop, they have a couple prepared for you to download:

The red fire truck is used for the In Wallander's Footsteps tours of Ystad given by the volunteer firemen.

This is a very nice site and well worth the time to explore it.
