Personal Quote:

Had a very rich, melodic and beautiful singing voice. In the film comedy Release the Prisoners to Spring (1975), for example, he sings the Birger Sjöberg song "Den första gång jag såg dig" which he also recorded among other Birger Sjöberg songs. He also appeared in musical roles on stage, a.o. as Guido in the original Swedish (and European) production of "Nine" in 1983. See more »
