Turning Torso Tragicomedy


Malmö’s most famous landmark is a spectacular Santiago Calatrava-designed residential tower called the Turning Torso.

Recuperative weekend

Good Gawd the human body’s ability to heal is an amazing thing. It’s now four full days since the surgery and I still have one hell of a black eye…but at least now I look as though I might have been on the winning side of the fight! By Saturday morning I was able dial …
