Inga Lindström is a German TV series of independent films, shot in parts of Östergötland and Sörmland along Sweden’s idyllic Baltic coast every summer since 2003. There are over 90 films so far, and new instalments are recorded every year. The films are romantic and the plot revolves around a man and a woman who run into obstacles along the way, but finally get each other and all ends well. “The Inga Lindström films are about love and relationships, and the sometimes bumpy road to get there,” says Johanna Åkerman, destination developer. “Millions of viewers tune in to watch how the love story unravels, but also to devour the Swedish landscape and culture.” Romantic lakes, picturesque manor houses, cosy cafés and of course the beautiful archipelago make the films a hit among viewers. 66 |
