After playing for IFK Skövde, he joined IFK Göteborg in 2003, a club he has played for until 2006, where he moved to the Danish champions F.C. Copenhagen on a four year contract, in a deal worth of 6 million DKK.
In IFK Göteborg he became an important first team player, earning him 14 appearances on the Swedish U21 team and a call-up for the Swedish national team.
In his time in the club he played 91 matches, and after his departure to F.C. Copenhagen, he left huge gap in the defence, which later was filled by Argentine defender José Shaffer coming from Racing Club.
 F.C. Copenhagen
In his first two years in F.C. Copenhagen he struggled to become a first team regular, first being a backup for former Norwegian international André Bergdølmo and later Danish international Niclas Jensen. However, in 2008, he managed to become a first choice on the left back position for his team, earning him a call-up to the Swedish national team, his first in over 18 months. His strong performances also had him linked with both English club West Ham United and Italian club Genoa.
With an injured Niclas Jensen in F.C. Copenhagens 2006–07 UEFA Champions League campaign, Wendt played regularly as a left back, and in the team's 3–1 win against Celtic, he alongside fellow Copenhagen defender Michael Gravgaard was chosen for the Eurosport "Team of the Round".
