Kufiyas in Wallander #1
I recently watched the Swedish Wallander series on netflix (I much prefer it to the PBS version starring Kevin Branagh) and spotted kufiyas a few times. Here's a photo of one time: it's Hanna, the daughter of the character Katarina Ahlsell, the district prosecutor (played by Lena Endre, who is also in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy -- she plays Erika Berger, co-owner of Millennium and some-time lover of Mikael Blomkvist). Here Hanna is taking a photo of her "boyfriend." I'm not sure which episode this is from. Sometime I'll go back and check.
In Sweden they simply call a kufiya a Palestinian scarf, or Palestinasjal.
