Discover a Malmö ghost story
Brewery owner Per Nilsson Möller doesn’t waste any time when his wife Karna dies in 1736, and he is quick to remarry. However, it doesn’t take long until Karna Möller lets him know that she is unhappy with that decision. Neighbors, employees and family members start seeing Karna’s ghost in and around the house and brewery. This marks the start of what will become the most well-known Malmö ghost story.
Eventually, the local authorities have no other choice but to start an investigation of the hauntings of Kalendegatan. Karna’s grave is dug up and the church is trying to do its part by calming the public with prayer. But in spite of that, reports of ghost sightings keep coming in. Karna’s shapeshifting appearance is terrifying. How can they find out what she wants, and how to make her leave the world of the living in peace?
A thrilling walking tour game

Henriette works as an actor at the Malmö city theater Hippodromen, which was built in the same place as where the Möller’s house and brewery once was located. Just like many of the other actors at Hippodromen, Henriette can sense Karna’s presence. Her interest in Karna Möller has resulted in quite a substantial collection of information and image material that she wants to share with you.
Head out on a ghost tour through the central parts of Malmö with Henriette. Together, you trace Karna through the city and visit the locations where her story took place.
