Find Hollywood Glamor in West SwedenIngrid Bergman had a typical Swedish summer house just outside the small village of Fjällbacka. and it’s easy to understand why she fell in love with this particular spot on the west coast. Fjällbacka has taken it’s name from the high cliffs just behind (and within) the village (fjäll means mountain), and the houses seem to be squeezed in between the rocks. This used to be a fishing village, but the town is well-known now for the The Fjällbacka Murders, a best-selling series of mystery novels by Camilla Läckberg that were turned into a Swedish television series. Noirish thrillers aside, it's an ultimate summer resort with seaside restaurants, beaches and the Väderöarna islands off the coast.
