Over 73 million people have read author Stieg Larsson’s three Millennium books – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. Follow along in Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander’s footsteps in our guided tour.

Hollywood has now released the American version of Stieg Larsson’s story. The main characters live and work in the central island of Södermalm in Stockholm. Now you can experience the atmosphere on location.

Follow along in Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander’s footsteps while getting additional background information about the characters and the author. The walk starts at Bellmansgatan 1, where Mikael Blomkvist lives, then passes the Millennium editorial office, Lisbeth Salander’s luxury apartment and many other locations mentioned in the books and film. On the way you will also learn more about historical and contemporary Stockholm and its inhabitants.
