Clues about Swedish culture

Swedish culture and lifestyle, through literature and film is hot stuff. The books of Stieg Larsson (Millennium Trilogy), Henning Mankell (Detective Wallander books and TV series) and Camilla Läckberg (‘Ice Princess’, ‘the Stonecutter’) lay bare the underbelly of Swedish society and delve into the collective Swedish psyche, admittedly in gorgeous natural settings. The popularity of Swedish crime fiction books, TV series and movies is astonishing, particularly with the international release of Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’.  If you are visiting Stockholm, take the Millennium Tour.
