Where is Hedestad? Print

Jacket cover from Fans of Stieg Larsson are wondering - where is that quaint little town in the Swedish countryside called Hedestad featured in Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?  Sorry to disappoint you, but it doesn't exist.  However - if you happen to be traveling to Stockholm, the Stockholm City Museum is offering a guided tour that visits real locations that the book mentions.  Some of the locations are Blomqvist's apartment, Lisbeth's apartment, the Kaffebar cafe in Stockholm (Blomqvist's hangout), and the Kvarnen bar (Lisbeth's hangout).
