Welcome to Sweden with Richard Kiel is a new TV series broadcast on Kanal 5 from March 9, 2007, until April 13, 2007.

In Welcome to Sweden we follow actor Richard Kiel (internationally known as Jaws in the James Bond movies The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Moonraker (1979) (1979)) and Verne Troyer, more known as "Mini Me" in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) and Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002).

The two men travel to Sweden to experience our traditions and, for them, slightly different way of life. Tour stops included visits to Eskilstuna, Västerås, Mora, Sälen, Borlänge, Åland, Uppsala, Visby, and Stockholm. At each place, the actors experienced various Swedish traditions like celebrating Midsummer’s Eve, May Day, a Crayfish party, Gymnasia graduation, Gustav Adolf-Day, Vasaloppet, opening of Parliament and a boat cruise.

The vignette graphics is created by Alphaville (directed by David Giese & Adam Marko-Nord) and vignette music made by Kungen & Hertigen.

Producer of the program series is Joachim Brobeck, a friend of ours, and the production company behind the show was Jarowskij.
