Good show
26 February 2000 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This show is made in the Stockholm archipelago, displaying the beautiful nature of Sweden. Acting is well done to from experienced swedish actors/actresses. The plot is also very well written. The main story is in every episode written to show everyone in the family a good time.

All in all a good show for the entire family to enjoy.
