Ystad and Wallander

I love Wallander, in all his incarnations: Book character, Swedish TV show character, even British TV show character. He has a certain melancholy quality that reminds me of my dad.

I would love to visit Wallander’s hometown¬†Ystad. Some of my ancestors lived in Kristianstad, which isn’t too far away (about an hour and 10 minutes by car, according to Google), so someday when I’m richer, God willing, I will plan a trip that includes both towns.
