Loosely inspired by true events of the 1990s involving a group called “Lidingöligan,” Netflix’s ‘Barracuda Queens’ is a Swedish crime drama series that centers upon the lives of four best friends, Lollo, Klara, Frida, and Mia, in the mid-1990s. Collectively known as the Barracuda Queens, the girls have a good reputation in the community, but when they get an expensive bill after enjoying a luxurious vacation, they plot to rob their new neighbor Amina’s house. Even though things don’t go according to the Barracuda Queens, Amina becomes interested in joining the group rather than pressing charges against them.
Now, the five girls start carrying out burglaries while targeting rich neighbors and the people who have done them wrong in any sort of way. Starring Alva Bratt, Tindra Monsen, Sandra Zubovic, Sarah Gustafsson, Tea Stjärne, and Mirja Turestedt, the drama show unfolds in 1995 in an affluent Stockholm suburb as the group of girls breaks into a number of luxurious properties.

Most of the pivotal sequences for ‘Barracuda Queens’ are lensed in Stockholm County, which is situated on Sweden’s Baltic Sea coast.

For instance, the capital of Sweden, that is, Stockholm, serves as one of the filming sites for the drama show.

Some are Djursholm Castle, Djursholm Chapel, Villa Pauli, Gamla Djursholm, Villa Dehlin, Prinsvillan, and Villa Lagerkrantz.
