Actress Sofia Helin’s favorite spots near the Öresund Bridge

As Saga Norén in crime series The Bridge, actress Sofia Helin has driven across the Öresund Bridge more times than she can count. Here are her favorite picks in the area.

Hotel Mäster Johan, Malmö

“I’ve stayed there a lot while working on The Bridge. The service is fantastic, which is incredibly important when you’re staying for long periods at a time. The staff are extremely helpful – nothing is too much trouble for them – and the breakfast buffet is amazing.”

Malmö Museums, Malmö

“Right now there is an exhibition about The Bridge at the Teknikens och Sjöfartens Hus Museum called Ett Malmö som inte finns (A Malmö that doesn’t exist). Among other things, you can peer through the cracks in a block of concrete to see various props and items that appeared in the series. Saga’s Porsche is parked there, and there is a display case showing Saga’s clothes – the leather pants, sweater, boots, and coat I wore almost every day for eight months.” Ett Malmö som inte finns is on at the Teknikens och Sjöfartens Hus Museum until September 2016.
