Yesterday was really a magic night to remember. The audience at the Stockholm Concert Hall gave Barbro Lindgren standing ovations after her acceptance speech. The evening started with Edda Magnason and her band playing I Can´t Give You Anything But Love. Actor Lamine Dieng was the compere for the evening and lead the program forward with a steady hand. The rest of the programme? Well, have a look at these beautiful images, taken by photographer Stefan Tell:
