So BBC remakes Swedish detective stories about Wallander and they have it take place in the original Swedish setting with the difference that everyone speaks English. My questions are: why not rewrite it into an English setting or why not settle with the subtitles to make it more authentic?

Then you watched the Swedish version. The English one is with Kenneth Branagh.

Because that is how the English-speaking world does things, I am afraid.

Also, did I mention I was a former associate of Stieg Larsson?

I know. It says so in your book.

Btw, isn't it a pity that someone else is making money from his books now when he's dead?
