The Killing effect: how four major crime series are shooting in Copenhagen this year

Wallander and Broen are both being filmed in Denmark this autumn

They've made a film primarily set in and named after the city, and British crime TV series 'Midsomer Murders' and 'The Team' chose it to film episodes in. And now Copenhagen has attracted two more major TV series to its streets.

Both the BBC’s adaptation of the Swedish series 'Wallander' starring Kenneth Branagh and the third season of Swedish-Danish co-production 'Broen' ('The Bridge') are heading to our capital this autumn.

This will be the final series of 'Wallander', and it will consist of three episodes, of which the first two will be primarily set in Copenhagen and Ystad, Sweden.

Previous series of the show, which in Sweden is a long-running series that started back in @@, have reportedly resulted in an increased interest among British tourists visiting southern Sweden, where the stories are primarily based.

"We are very happy about Copenhagen becoming a central location in this highly popular TV production. We are looking forward to welcoming Kenneth Branagh and the film set," stated Thomas Gammeltoft, the CEO of The Copenhagen Film Fund in a press release.

“We are proud that the production of the television series is becoming even more Danish than seasons one and two, thus ensuring even more Danish jobs,” said Gammeltoft.

“It promises to be another great season and we are delighted to be on board.”
