Stockholm was in Lonely Planet’s list of Best in Travel
: Top 10 cities for 2012. The city was described as: "The film release of 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' might have prompted a new wave of Stieg Larsson fans to look for the grimy side of Stockholm. Unfortunately, they’ll have to look quite hard, because Stockholm looks as perfect as it’s ever been. This is as seductive a capital city as can be imagined – cosy yet cosmopolitan, wilfully alternative and effortlessly picturesque. With its trendy design shops and bohemian bars, the island of Södermalm is one of the coolest kids on the block, while the stately parks of Djurgården make it the best island for an evening stroll. Admittedly Stockholm has never been a cheap date. But even if Stockholm leaves you with a lighter wallet, you’ll inevitably still leave it with a heavy heart."
