What to expect

Join this self-guided audio walking tour through Ystad and immerse yourself in Henning Mankell’s Kurt Wallander short story ”The Death of the Photographer”.

It's a chilly spring morning in 1988. Police detective Kurt Wallander is having breakfast when he is alerted that a local photographer has been found brutally murdered. The events of the murder are curious, and it becomes even stranger when Wallander finds a photo album that contains a grotesquely distorted image of himself at the crime scene.

This tour is self-guided via a GPS-based app which can be downloaded to your smartphone. There will be clues and evidence material hidden in your surroundings, as well as features that are triggered to show up on your mobile screen when you get close to them. Through sound, images and exciting puzzles you will be challenged to use your detective skills to solve this case.

This is perfect the perfect activity for puzzle game fans and those who want to go sightseeing in Ystad in a fun and flexible manner.
