We visited Gnesta to see the sights from the 2009 film "Män som hatar kvinnor." Since the compact town centre can easily be seen in half a day, we stopped at the Humbles bakery for lunch before catching the train back to Stockholm.
We had a typical Swedish lunch consisting (beet salad & meatball sandwich, pancakes with jelly). Everything was so good we bought a loaf of bread for the road, and it would not disappoint either!
