After some months the war in Finland is over, but World War II continues and the unit moves to the western border of Sweden, where the men have to stay for many years to come. Sweden is not at war, but some of the men are frightened that the Nazis will one day attack also this country. The years passes by without much drama. There are some confrontations with German soldiers on the other side of the border, but the problems the men in the unit encounter are mainly of a more social nature.

Sweet nostalgia over WW II era in Sweden
15 June 2002 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Någonstans i Sverige means "Somewhere in Sweden", and was the very indifferent address of drafted men serving for the defense in Sweden during World War II. This TV series is based on the very famous Swedish journalist/writer Jan-Olov Olsson's novel with the same title. The series follows a handful of drafted men during the war, and at the same time gives a quite, but open-hearted portrayal of influential persons of World history, like Hitler, Churchill, and F.D. Roosevelt.
