Young Wallander is a Swedish crime drama series, created by Ben Harris. It is based on Henning Mankell's novels. Directed by Ole Endresen and Jens Jonsson and produced by Berna Levin the drama will follow a younger version of the iconic Swedish detective – but with a twist.
In addition to functioning as a prequel, the English-language show promises to be a “modern reimagining” – so there will be no jump back in time to accommodate Wallander’s youth, but rather a younger version of the detective transplanted into present-day Sweden.
Wallander is a classic mystery series that originally aired in Sweden back in 2005. The series will follow a recently graduated police officer finding his feet within the force.
The series will be spoken entirely in English but will employ talent from Sweden.
