Camilla Läckberg was born here in 1974 and it was obvious from the start that she was a natural born storyteller. She wrote her first story at the age of five.

After finishing The Gothenburg School of Economics she moved to Stockholm and worked as a product manager for Telia and Fortum.

In 2019 Camilla Läckberg founded the production company Bad Flamingo Studios together with brother Alexander and Baker Karim. The idea for starting their own company came when Camilla Läckberg and Alexander Karim met on the reality show Stjärnorna på slottet (the Stars in the Castle). Collaborating with Alexander’s brother Baker Karim was a given. With his many years as a director and his outspoken advocacy for diversity it was a match made in heaven.

The purpose with their company is first and foremost to be able to take control of the material they themselves create and have the power over their own productions. In the longer run they would like to offer other creators the same kind of power. With strategic thinking and new digital solutions Läckberg and the Karim brothers want to create new possibilities for more artists.


In 2021 Camilla Läckberg launched three ecological bag in box wines together with the Italian wine producer Poderi dal Nespoli from Emilia-Romagna in northern Italy.
