Monika Dapkute-Sinkeviciene of the production services company Ahil has told BNS that the new series will be set in contemporary Sweden.

According to Ahil, Vilnius was chosen both because of a diversity of settings and landscapes it offers and its reputation as a film-friendly city.

"Vilnius has already built a strong reputation as a film-friendly city and with its exceptional locations and local crews, it became an obvious choice for Young Wallander," the company said.

"With huge cinematic potential, and a diversity of settings and landscapes, it acts as the perfect backdrop for our Swedish-set narrative."

The Lithuanian capital offers "an abundance of compelling locations, from moody and dark alleys and disused prisons to shining trendy restaurants,

"It provides the wide-ranging look and feel we were after," the company said in its response to BNS.

Lithuania was the filming location for Netflix's Last Czars mini-series about the Romanov dynasty and Tokyo Trial, a historical drama mini-series aired several years ago.
