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.

Disclaimer: we did not book in advance, but another couple we were waiting with, did. We decided the day itself, judging that the weather was acceptable, to join this tour. The site listed the medieval museum as a place to buy the tickets, but we were confronted with closed doors there. The online ticket booking didn’t work on my phone. Was looking really forward to this tour because of the great ratings & really disappointed that we didn’t get to experience it. The couple who did have tickets were on the phone for a while, apparently with staff who were not really informed, but they were told they would get their money back.

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.

This tour was a highlight for me. Also really enjoyed the tour of the neighborhood (Kinda seemed like the Brooklyn of Stockholm). Also it brought back so many memories of the book (read about 5 yrs ago and Loved all 3). It is worth your time. The neighborhood (like brooklyn) has been taken over by big businesses (H&M, Starbucks, etc) but there are lots of local joints with awesome food, clothing, etc.

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.
