The tour is very informative, not only about the book but also the author. As a fan of the books nothing better than walking throught the locations amd knowing why the author picked them - it's not out from nothing! And I am so glad I have the chance to know more about Stieg Larsson.
Our guide also mentioned some social issues in the Swedish society which is very interesting as well.

If you're a Stieg Larsson fan, read some or all of his books or watched the movies, then this tour is for you. It gives you the inside story about Stieg, his personal life and the social problems in Swedish society that inspired his books. You'll also see the locations talked about in the book and shown in the films. Well worth the time.

My husband is a big fan of the Millenium books, which was the main reason for our visit to Stockholm. The tour tied up our trip so well, it was a lovely morning spent seeing some of the main sights from the books.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the books, Stieg Larsson as well as history of Stockholm, which gave the tour a nice rounded feel. However, on reflection, her vast knowledge and focus limited the group's ability to see more of Sodermalm according to Stieg Larsson. This was because the tour guide focused more on the history and "between the lines of the stories".

It's not a bad idea to have the history of the city/country and author alongside the fictional story but when it ends up overshadowing the main focus of the tour, it is disappointing and a bit of a let down. I would suggest making the tour 2 separate tours that look at the non-fictional and fictional aspects of this area of Stockholm because it is all very interesting.

Stieg Larsson's books are the reason I came to Stockholm, and when I found out they actually ran Millennium tours I immediately signed up. The tour takes you to significant locations that were both mentioned in the books and used as filming locations. It also covers facts about Stockholm that influenced Stieg Larsson's writing. I had Mia as my guide, who was extremely knowledgable, spoke clearly, and kept the whole tour very interesting. It was definitely an enjoyable tour. If you're a fan of the books, it's a great experience to be at the actual places featured in the books, and I would highly recommend the tour.

My friend who knew me as a fan of Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy arranged this tour for us. Of course, I thoroughly enjoyed it but my friend who has yet to read the series or watch any of the movies even enjoyed the tour very much. Our guide was very courteous and knowledgeable. He not only told us about the author and his series, but he also informed us about the social issues as well as other various aspects of the country. He even went over the scheduled time to take the whole group on a complete and wonderful tour. I loved it!!

Being a fan of the Millennium books and movies (both the Swedish and American versions) we thoroughly enjoyed this approximately 1.5-hour tour. But even if you haven't read all the books or haven't seen all the movies you'll still get a great tour of Södermalm and see a lot of cool places anyway.

Our guide was very knowledgeable, presenting the information in a thoughtful, playful way, and she was very engaging with everyone in the group. It was one of the few opportunities where we felt comfortable to strike up conversations and enjoy the company of like-minded people as we walked up and down the streets inhabited by Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander. Spots included Mikael's apartment, Lisbeth's posh new digs, Kaffebar and the Millennium offices. (Of course, the Millennium books are fiction, so the sites are, respectively, someone else's actual apartment at Bellmansgatan 1, someone else's apartment at Fiskargatan 9, Mellkvist Kaffebar and third-floor apartments above the actual Greenpeace offices.)

You can pick up a Millennium map for 40 SEK at the Medieval Museum and tour all the places on your own, but I recommend going with the guided tour. The additional information and social interaction is well worth it.

Everything in this city seems expensive compared to England so paying 130sek pp seemed expensive for this tour compared to other free tours where you leave a tip based on your experience. That said it was interesting and informative and tied in various parts of the Millennium books as well as giving an understanding of author steig larsson's thinking and experiences as he was writing the novels as well as places portrayed in the books. Took a couple of hours. Would only recommend it if you are a die-hard fan of the books and remember specific story lines.

We were so looking forward to this tour but were greatly disappointed in the presentation. You'd be better off walking around Sodermalm knowing that you were walking where Stieg Larsson lived.

Our guide was fantastic and the walk alone through Sodermalm is really great. My only wish is that I remembered more the details of the books because the guide is so thorough. Even with my bad memory, I thought the tour was great.

I had read Millennium series some time ago. Found the tour really enjoyable with some interesting facts about the history of Stockholm as well as learning about Stieg Larsson and visiting places from the books and films (Swedish & American version).

Sodermalm is a trendy place in Stockholm and great to explore by foot.

The tour has been running for 10 years and is still very popular.
