James Bond : From Sweden with Love

From Sweden with Love (FSWL) is entirely dedicated to Agent 007 and his creator Ian Fleming. We have been studying the phenomenon for more than 30 years. FSWL started as a personal examination of the fictive agent but has developed and progressed now featuring exclusive interviews, Bond news in Swedish media, book and film reviews, meetings with Bond stars who have appeared in or worked on the James Bond films, database with our 007 collection featuring thousands of items, articles and travel stories from the world of 007, competitions, webshop featuring Swedish film posters, the films on Blu-ray and the soundtracks on CD.

Sweden have been represented by (00)7 Bond girls - Britt Ekland, Maud Adams, Anne Lonnberg (Anne's father is Swedish), Mary Stavin, Kristina Wayborn, Izabella Scorupco and Eva Green (Eva's father is Swedish).
Dolph Lundgren and stuntman Lars Lundgren have also appeared in the Bond film series. Two other Swedish actors , Ola Rapace and Jens Hultén, appeared in the 23rd adventure, Skyfall (2012) (2012), with Per Hallberg supervising the sound which gave him an Oscar®.

FSWL's vision is to focus on the phenomenon from a Swedish point of view. We have a serious passion (not interested in rumours) for the fictional hero created by Ian Fleming in 1952 when he wrote the first James Bond novel - Casino Royale.

FSWL is also a tribute to producers Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli for adapting Ian Fleming's novels into films.

He was the associate producer on two feature films, Lost Dogs (2005) and Flirting with Flamenco (2006).

Andrew McNess writes about James Bond films at A View On Bond and is the author of A Close Look At A VIEW TO A KILL. His first experience of Bond was a television screening of THUNDERBALL, a superb introduction if ever there was one (although a theatre screening would have been nice). However, while he always liked the Bond novels and films as a child and teenager, it was a re-immersion in the films in the mid-nineties that really solidified his interest. He always enjoys the Bondian tropes, but it is the variation and experimentation found within those elements from film to film that really piques his interest, and inspires his writing. Away from Bond, Andrew manages Alan J. Pakula: A Cinema of Anxiety and writes on cinema at Slivers of Cinema.
