Stockholm's Millennium Tour is worth investigating

The Millennium Tour on the central island of Sodermalm in Stockholm takes in the various haunts of cyber-goth Lisbeth Salander and her ally, the investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist. Presumably, the tour doesn't include the riper, kinkier and more distressing elements of Larsson's hugely successful (over 60 million readers) crime trilogy? "No, not really," says Sara Claesson, somewhat anticlimactically. Instead, the head of communications for the tour emphasises the appeal of Salander. "She is so 'Pippi Longstocking', a very famous character from a Swedish children's book by Astrid Lindgren," maintains Claesson. "She's obstinate, small, smart and strong."

A late try by Rhys Evans salvaged a 20-20 draw for the Super League favourites, Warrington, at Hull. The home side had made all the running, partly thanks to two tries from Danny Tickle. "I thought we did enough to win," said their new coach, Peter Gentle, but Evans had other ideas.
