"Astrid ended up in the archipelago in Furusund when her in-laws bought a summer house, and this place became one of her favorite places to spend every summer as long as she was alive. She loved the archipelago and the summer idyll out there.”Saltkrokan” was originally the name of the Lindgren family's sailing boat, and later also the name of the television series that Olle Hellbom and Olle Nordemar had begged from Astrid. After thirty archipelago summers, Astrid thought she knew the area and the people enough to write about it. Saltkrokan was the only story she wrote directly for television. Maria Johansson, who plays Tjorven, was voted Sweden's Greatest Television Personality, Torsten Lilliecrona as Melcker Best Male Actor and the series Best TV Program of 1964."
