Wallander – the Swedish tourist industry must hate the series

Watched a couple of Wallanders and not sure if I enjoyed it or not.

The scenery was flat and unpleasant, misty, muddy roads and paths. Houses were grubby, untidy, poorly kept and maintained and the whole thing was totally depressing.

Detectives were unshaven and sullen, no one seemed to converse with anyone and the whole thing was most unfriendly. Is this supposed to be the new dark mystery style?

I am sure the real Sweden can’t be like this, but this was a very poor advert for the country. They should take a leaf out of Midsomer Murders’ book.

Evolution with Him or without Him?
