Östhammar City Hall and Town Square

Molin filming sites. The Lars Molin Society shows you where it happened.

Lars Molin often used Östhammar and Öregrund in his films. It could be said that the foundations for Lars Molin’s writing career were laid here, on the town square in Östhammar.

Lars was involved in local politics. Early on, he saw a problem with people from the city moving to the country and demanding resources and service from the archipelago. He also saw how shopkeepers had dual price lists: one for summer vacationers and one for residents.

That laid the basis for Badjävlar, which became Lars Molin’s great breakthrough. No screenwriter had ever been so harshly criticized in Swedish film history. The newspapers spoke of a sex scandal. Former Prime Minister Olof Palme was angry and felt taken advantage of.

But the Swedish people liked what they saw. Several scenes from Badjävlar were shot in the city hall on the square. At the town meeting, Nilsson is steamrollered by the chairman, all to Finn Zetterholm’s and Bengt Sändh’s song “Han var den radikalaste i hela SSU”.
