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.
