I often get questions about Stieg Larsson’s Millenium trilogy, especially now that the American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is out. I haven’t seen it yet, but of course I’ve seen the Swedish original. Much of the story takes place here in Stockholm, and both movies were shot on location.
Nowadays you can take guided tours set around the locations in the books. They will take you to Mikael Blomqvist’s favorite café and the 7-Eleven where Lisbeth Salander does her grocery shopping.
And here’s a fun fact: for those who’d rather go by themselves than follow the 2-hour tour, there are Millenium Maps for sale. They cost about $ 7.
