The contrast between the creative, trend-seeking city and the lushly beautiful and relaxing archipelago makes Stockholm unique. Stockholm’s archipelago plays a lead role in the cinematic versions of children’s books like Astrid Lindgren’s Seacrow Island, in Ingmar Bergman’s renderings, and in the new Nordic Noir crime genre.
In the new crime genre, Swedish novelists use Stockholm’s beautiful archipelago as a backdrop for horrible events, or as a place for relaxation. In crime writer Viveca Sten’s “The Sandhamn Murders”, the archipelago is the site of murder, while for Stieg Larsson, the main character Mikael Blomkvist uses a cottage on the island of Sandhamn for recreation and writing.
Ingmar Bergman spent his summers as a child and teenager in the Stockholm archipelago. A love of the archipelago’s cliffs and islands often represents light, freedom and happiness in Bergman’s films. It make up a strong contrast to the dark city. The intense, nostalgic love of the archipelago appears in the movies “Summer with Monika”, which was filmed on the islands around Ornö in the Stockholm region; “Wild Strawberries”, filmed on Ängsö and Dalarö, and “Summer Interlude”, filmed on Dalarö.
