The film guide to Stockholm

"Film has dreams, film has music. No form of art transcends ordinary consciousness the way film does, delving straight into our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul.”

Ingmar Bergman

Stieg Larsson and Millennium

The Millennium Trilogy began as a series of books; next it became a Swedish movie, and then an American one. On the heels of the success, tons of fans have been making their way to Stockholm to see the sites where the stories unfold. 

To experience the city in the footsteps of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo you can take the popular Millennium Tour.The walking tour is laced with factual information and intriguing stories that tie the real Stockholm to its fictional counterpart. 

Stieg Larsson introduced a different side of Stockholm to the world, beyond long-held stereotypes, revealing a more accessible, contemporary, diverse and far grittier face of the city through his fictional lead characters – journalist Mikael Blomkvist and hacker-extraordinaire Lisbeth Salander.
