I'll try to answer some questions.

All are friends and family of mine, and their friends.

I spend a lot of time and energy looking for locations. We often have to go long distances to get to these places (I don't have a driver's license, so Eleen has to drive me everywhere). I also read forums about urban exploration on the internet regularly.

Not all them are here in Norrköping. Some of the more illustrious places are located quite far from here. I sometimes mention this in the closing credits (like the rauk scenes in Blue Madonna, and the Asylum in Amber's Blood).

I haven't needed any permission for most of the exterior scenes. The tricky thing is to get people out of the way. That's why I prefer to shoot in the middle of the night. The lighting is perfect around 3-4 a.m. in Sweden in the summer, and you rarely get disturbed by anyone. I did stumble into some hippies camping in the middle of the Loredum Stones area while shooting for Amber's Blood however. But they had just been woken up by cows, and were getting ready to move to another area to meditate. Cows were all over the place that morning, and I spent plenty of hours retouching the images in Photoshop to remove them all. This is what some of the original images looked like.

The stones are called Ale's Stones in real life, BTW.

Getting permission to shoot most of the derelict places is obviously impossible.

It varies. Sometimes I just shoot it as it is (with minor changes), and sometimes I spend half a day rearranging stuff.

Thank you for another very interesting and beautiful game.

Thanks Mikael!

I love the pictures in the Carol Reed games. Thanks for your post, it is so interesting to know some of how it's done. Looking forward to Amber's Blood (and the next one too!).

I loved the little interview! I've always been curious too. It really does seem like such an adventure in itself going from place to place taking pictures. A commentary would be amazing!
I love cows too and I loved the pic you shared!
It really makes me want to go and tour the places.
