Trivia

All the tram scenes were shot during one very hot day in August 2002. The team crew consisted of three persons, Stig Ericsson, Kurt Tedenbrant and Kristian Gemfeldt, who worked for a non profit organization called Spårvägssällskapet Ringlinien. Their uniforms represent different seasons and were made during the 40's and are therefore authentic. What is not authentic is that the trams were driven on the right hand side during the shooting and Sweden in the days before 1967 had left hand side traffic. In one scene in the last episode the trams are even driven backwards to get the impression of left-traffic. The trams themselves are from the 20's and to get the correct 40's-feeling you won't see any curtain since they didn't exist during WW2. See more »
