It stars Krister Henriksson as Kurt Wallander and centers on the detective’s unofficial investigation of the Cold War-related death of a Russian diver. Pic was released in Scandinavia on 89 prints by Svensk Film on Jan. 11, and has so far earned an estimated €450,000 ($603,000), according to Anne Feret, Zodiak Rights’ theatrical sales manager.
