In Camilla Läckberg’s Footsteps
Follow in the footsteps of Camilla Läckberg’s crime fiction characters on a new guided tour of Fjällbacka – where her novels are set (90 minutes’ drive north of Gothenburg). In Camilla’s Footsteps consists of a walk around Fjällbacka, which starts in the village square. From there, we follow in the footsteps of Camilla to known, and perhaps less well-known, places in her books and films.
We begin by walking up to the church via the part of the village known as Backarna, from where we have a good view of the nearby islands. This is the area where Erika and Patrik lived according to the films based on Camilla Läckberg’s first four books.
We also visit the diving tower at Badholmen, where Camilla Läckberg placed one of her many deceased characters. We then continue to the gorge Kungsklyftan, where some scenes from the movie Ronia the Robber’s Daughter were filmed. Camilla Läckberg was also attracted to the special atmosphere here, and used it as the location where 3 of her murder victims were found.
If the weather is reasonable, we recommend a walk up to the mountain, Vetteberget. The view from the top is magnificent, and this is the perfect spot from which to get an overview of all the different locations used by Camilla in her books.
During the guided tour you will also learn more about other parts of Fjällbacka’s history, including Ingrid Bergman, herring fishing periods, the shipping industry, and much more.
