I've been waffling over whether or not to review Frommer's Sweden (4th edition; April 2005), since I didn't actually go everywhere in Sweden that Frommer covered. But I feel compelled to point out some of the shortcomings I experienced in this book. First, while I understand that information is subject to rapid change, we should assume some of it remains stable: like the location of hotels. After exiting the tunnelbana, we followed Frommer's map to find our hotel. I became alarmed when we passed another hotel which, according to Frommer's map, should not have been anywhere near where it was. But it did prepare me to reach the x marking our spot to find out that our hotel was nowhere to be found. Fortunately I had the street address on our confirmation, because the hotel turned out to be in the opposite direction and less than a block away from our arrival point. Nor was this the book's only failing...and I might not have known that if we were not in Sweden visiting a native. The book's guide to customs on tipping was incorrect. The number they provide for emergencies in "Fast Facts: Sweden" (p. 51) (equivalent to 911 in the US) has been out of date since 1996. (Frommers does, oddly, give the correct number in some other sections.) The Stockholm Waterfestival they list for August has not been held since, as near as I can determine, the late 90s.

I don't mean to suggest the book is worthless. We did get a lot of value out of it, in both Stockholm and Visby. But I want to strongly caution those who wish to use this book to be prepared to adjust if they encounter these errors or others of which I am unaware. And, in an emergency, dial 112.
