Yellow Bird established itself in the Swedish, as well as the international markets in 2003, when it released a series of television films based on Swedish author, Henning Mankell’s, renowned fictional detective, Kurt Wallander. The success of the Wallander franchise was quickly followed by Stieg Larsson’s worldwide phenomenon, The Millennium Trilogy, Jo Nesbø’s Headhunters, Liza Marklund’s Annika Bengtzon series, the British version of Wallander with Kenneth Branagh, and more recently, Norwegian TV-series, Occupied, based on an original idea by Jo Nesbø.
