Life is mimicking art for the star of a Scandinavian detective show as she tries to track down the Sheffield owner of a wallet lost in Copenhagen.

Sofie Gråbøl, who played Sarah Lund in the award-winning series The Killing, or Forbrydelsen, found the wallet in the Danish capital.

Posting on Twitter last night, her friend and actress/author Emma Kennedy said the actress was trying to return it to its owner, a Dorothy Donnison from Sheffield.

With the help of her followers, Sofie and Emma spread the word about the search and managed to find out more information about Dorothy.

And this morning the TV detective has managed to contact her.

Posting at 9.53am Emma wrote: "UPDATE: We have a number for Dorothy. Repeat, a number for Dorothy….(and she’s STILL in Copenhagen) *thrilled* Agent Grabol is ON IT."

And 20 minutes later she added: "UPDATE: Sofie has spoken to Dorothy, repeat spoken to Dorothy.

Sofie is not on Twitter, but fans of the show have imagined how the search for Dorothy might play out as an episode of The Killing.
