What you need to know before your trail

Martha Anderson may be 79 but she has dreams – big dreams – dreams of escaping her care home and robbing a bank for example. She and a few others come up with a cunning plan to break out and land themselves in a far more attractive Stockholm establishment.

Holding on tight to their zimmer frames, they’re off on a big and very funny adventure!

Travel Guide

Well this makes for a nice little jaunt around the city of Stockholm taking in some very cool places such as Södermalm which may not always be on a tourist map but which should be as this is an island region of Stockholm that really is the place to visit.

When you walk around a city and imagine a little old lady having done much of the same journey before you , it takes on a comical as well as interesting read. Very funny!

“Martha Andersson from Södermalm, Stockholm walked with a slight stoop, wearing a plain coat of non descript colour, chosen specially to avoid attracting attention.”
