Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been a brand icon for Swedish companies for many years and Stieg Larsson´s saga, “millenium”, became very popular overnight. Those are examples of  characters who most of the people would associate to Sweden. But, there are other names which young generations would not recognize so easily. For instance, this is the case of the Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren, who many of you remember from movies like Universal Soldier or Rocky IV (I always thought he was from Eastern Europe) .Another example is the famous actress Greta Garbo, who played during the silent films Hollywood period. She was awarded as the fifth greatest female star of all time by the American Film Institute. Find below some pictures of some of the most known Swedish celebrities: The tennis player Björn Borg, the Swedish band Mando diao, the inventor of the dynamite, Alfred Nobel or Pipi Langstrump.
