Emily Barker – “Nostalgia Reprise” {Free Song Download}

Wallander began as a mystery novel series. It was later turned into a TV series in Sweden and was more recently re-interpreted by the BBC (both versions are worth watching, by the way). This song – sadly only a fragment – plays at the end credits of some BBC episodes. Emily Barker apparently received such a flood of requests for this version of the song (it was originally recorded with a full ensemble) that she decided to post it as a free download. While the original is enjoyable enough, there’s something downright haunting about this briefer snippet. I frequently use it to work through the broodier sections of my writing.
