The Millennium walk
This rambling tour takes you around the multitude of locations within Södermalm in the heart of Sweden’s capital of Stockholm. Here you can wander past the fictional homes of crime solving duo Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander, as well as the offices for the Millennium magazine, the synagogue visited by Inspector Bublanski and the quaint cafes patronised by the cast.
Praise from Lonely Planet about the Millennium Walk: “There’s no better way to pay tribute to your favourite authors or characters than to follow in their footsteps via these entertaining tours” and “It’s an atmospheric walk which helps colour in the dark outlines of Scandi noir”.
The Bridge bus tour
The Øresund Bridge, which recently celebrated its 15th anniversary on 1st July 2015, is part of the iconic landmark tour of the insidious backdrops featured in The Bridge. On this insightful journey around Malmö in Skåne, the same county seen onscreen as part of Wallander’s Ystad, you can step into the shoes of Saga Norén and discover more about the history of the renowned surroundings.
VisitSweden best describes the sight-seeing guide as: “This Bridge-themed bus tour of the city is narrated by an expert and takes you to key locations and scenes from the television series. Fan of The Bridge? Then this is a must. And when you visit we think you’ll become a fan of Malmö and Skåne too.”
Avid explorers can also take advantage of the unique Taxi Stockholm tour. “Explore Stockholm is a new type of guide tour controlled by an application that uses GPS and ‘geo-fencing’ to activate different stories about the places you visit. With commentary from the loudspeakers and moving images on the screens, you can be sure of experiencing Stockholm in a way no-one else has done before.” This service unveils a true crime themed journey taking you to the haunting places of the Stureplan massacre to the infamous murder of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme.
