Johanna Sällström

Johanna Maria Ellinor Berglund-Sällström (born Berglund 30 December 1974 in Stockholm - died 13 February 2007 in Malmö) was a Swedish actress. She worked as actress for more than 15 years before her suicide. Sällström made her first stage appearance in Hudiksvall at the age of 15 in A Midsummer Night's Dream. She became famous in Sweden in the 1990s after portraying the teenage girl Victoria Bärnsten in the soap opera Tre kronor. Thereafter she appeared in numerous productions, and received a Guldbagge Award for best female actress in 1998. Later that same year, unable to cope with her new-found celebrity, she took a break from filming and moved to Copenhagen, Denmark, where she worked in a café. In 2000 she returned to Sweden to continue her acting career. If she had wanted to disappear and be forgotten about, she had very much achieved that. She did not enjoy the success of previous years until she won the role of police agent Linda Wallander in the Swedish TV series Wallander, which brought her career and financial success again.
