Every week, all year round, hundreds of people walk the streets of Södermalm to find out more about the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo…
Welcome to join the city-walk called the Millennium Tour – in the footsteps of Lisbeth Salander and Stieg Larsson – organized by the Stockholm City Museum on Wednesdays at 18 H and on Saturdays at 11.30 H. Please find out more about tickets and maps at www.stadsmuseum.stockholm.se
“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has opened, and there are plenty of reasons to praise the performances of Daniel Craig, Stellan Skarsgard and Rooney Mara…but the stand out of the cast is really the city of Stockholm — and the Swedish style in particular. It’s the dead of winter in Sweden and whole cast is obviously freezing all the time — but they look so good in their cold weather clothes. No hideous Patagonia shells or marshmallow down puffy jackets. It’s all sleek wool top coats, tasteful tweeds, simple wool dresses, some fantastic shapeless leather get ups for Mara and a very good corduroy blazer on a very bad man. So where do you go to get that Millennium series chic winter look? If you’re not interested in sifting through H&M’s new “Dragon Tattoo Collection” it’s time for your very own Stockholm style pilgrimage.” Read the whole article by Charles Runnette on NewNowNext>>

Right now BBC Fast Track is filming in Stockholm. I had the pleasure of keeping them company all day. Stockholm was beautiful dressed in white as you can see. Almost like a fairytale. We mostly walked in the footsteps of Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist and met some people who actually knew Stieg Larsson, the late author of the Millennium Trilogy.
Here we are at Bellmansgatan 1. This is where Mikael Blomkvist lives in an attic apartment with a view of the water and Old Town (Gamla stan). In the books, the entrance of the building is at street level. In reality, the entrance to Bellmansgatan 1 is from the walkway over the street.
