Move[edit]

Should this be moved to Wallander, which currently redirects to the character Kurt Wallander? –anemoneprojectors– 11:18, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: moved. Consensus is clear that Kurt Wallander isn't the primary topic. If an overall article is created it should be moved to the primary location (ping me and I'll do it), but in the meantime the dab page will be there. Jenks24 (talk) 10:52, 21 March 2013 (UTC)



Wallander (disambiguation)Wallander – I personally think people searching for the term "Wallander" are more likely to want one the articles named Wallander as listed on this disambiguation page, rather than the character Kurt Wallander, to which Wallander currently redirects. –anemoneprojectors– 11:32, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

  • Support - yes, evidently. In ictu oculi (talk) 14:23, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Semi-oppose. I don't think people searching for Wallander will be looking for an article on the fictional character, but I do think they will be looking for an article on the franchise, which includes the character and the three listed series of films and TV shows. I would create a page at Wallander about the franchise and its overall history. bd2412 T 00:52, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Support I would think the various series would be contentious as to what is primary, so disambiguation is best. -- 65.92.180.137 (talk) 00:48, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment I have notified Wikipedia:WikiProject Disambiguation of this discussion. –anemoneprojectors– 14:16, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Make article about the series - it's clear that an article about the overall series is justified, and once written, should clearly be primary topic. It might make sense to broaden the Kurt Wallander page to cover both the character and the series for this purpose. Ego White Tray (talk) 21:36, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
    I completely agree with this. The different series are not ambiguous with each other, as they are series within the franchise of the character. bd2412 T 01:11, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
