This is a wonderful tribute to Bellman’s most colourful character: Movitz. His fortunes and misfotunes are presented by the expressive voice of Mikael Samuelson, accompanied by Bengan Jansson on accordion and Björn Ståbi on violin. The episodes about Movitz are framed by the very calm and restful description of a boat ride on Riddarfjärden in Stockholm.
