James Bond : From Sweden with Love
From Sweden with Love (FSWL) is entirely dedicated to James Bond: Agent 007 and his creator Ian Fleming. We have been studying the phenomenon for almost 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).
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 of his fourteen James Bond novels - Casino Royale.
FSWL is also a tribute to producers Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli for adapting Ian...
