In the molecule of the title compound, [InCl3(C12H12N2)(C2H6OS)], the InIII atom is six-coordinated in a distorted octahedral configuration by two N atoms from the chelating 4,4'-dimethyl-2,2'-bipyridine ligand, one O atom from dimethyl sulfoxide and three Cl atoms. In the crystal structure, intermolecular C-H...Cl hydrogen bonds link the molecules into centrosymmetric dimers.
