Matti Bye (Everlasting Moments, The 101-Year-Old Man Who Skipped Out on the Bill and Disappeared, A Serious Game, One Last Deal, Faro) has composed the original music for the new Netflix original series Young Wallander. The show is developed by Ben Harris (Devils) based on Henning Mankell’s best-selling Kurt Wallander novels and stars Adam Pålsson, Richard Dillane, Leanne Best, Yasen Atour, Charles Mnene, Jacob Collins-Levy, Alan Emrys and Kiza Deen. The drama is set in contemporary Sweden and focuses on the formative experiences – professional and personal – faced by Kurt as a recently graduated police officer in his early twenties. Harris is also executive producing the Yellow Bird UK production and Berna Levin (The Girl in the Spider’s Web) serves as a producer. Young Wallander will premiere this Thursday, September 3 exclusively on Netflix.

Bye also has the Finnish biographical drama Tove directed by Zaida Bergroth and starring Alma Pöysti, Krista Kosonen, Shanti Roney & Joanna Haartti (to be released in Scandinavian theaters this fall), as well as the Swedish feature Dag för dag directed by Felix Herngren coming up.
