About

We are MinnesotaSwede!

Kris Rydholm Överby is a true Minnesotan, born and raised in the Twin Cities. After university in the States, she landed in Sweden and then traveled the globe as Editor-in-chief for Critical Care News. In addition to being a freelance medical writer, she is an authorized Stockholm Guide and tour leader.

Magnus Rydholm is a genuine Swede and has a background in economics and as a teacher of economics and law. Magnus is also a tour leader. He has grown up and lived in many parts of Sweden, including Värmland, Småland, Skåne, and Östergötland.

We live in Sigtuna, a small town founded by the Vikings and where Sweden begins. We both have a natural passion for Minnesota and Sweden, and have been tourleading friends and business associates in both countries for decades. We also have a love for history and genealogy:  Kris has traced her roots back to the 1800’s and Magnus to the mid-1600’s.
