Stockholm, the Swedish capital, is located in northern Europe between the Baltic Sea and the vast Lake Mälaren, making water a constant element in the landscape. The city is divided among more than a dozen islands joined by nearly 60 bridges, creating a colourful pattern.
Although the Swedish capital has never lacked for attractive features, since the publication of Millennium the city has become a worldwide literary phenomenon and the preferences of tourists visiting Stockholm have changed. Previously tourism was concentrated around Stortorget and the immediate vicinity, the Slottet Kungliga (Royal Palace), the Storkyrkan (cathedral), the Nobelmuseet (Nobel Museum) or the doors of what was the ABBA recording studio (Sankt Eriksgatan, 58).
However, since Larsson's novels went on sale, the busiest places in the city are the home of Mikael Blomkvist, the building housing the publishers of Millennium magazine, the 7-Eleven where Lisbeth Salander buys her Billys Pan Pizza or the bars frequented by the characters in the series.
The places in the city plan and location map correspond to each of the most emblematic elements of The Millennium Tour
