The Local features in The Girl in the Spider's Web, which stars Claire Foy as hacker Lisbeth Salander and Swedish-Icelandic actor Sverrir Gudnason as journalist Mikael Blomqvist.
The thriller is the sequel to 2011's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and delves into Salander's past.
A fictional article from The Local Sweden is shown on screen in a few scenes during the film.
Stockholm-dwellers will also be able to recognize several spots in the Swedish capital, where parts of the film were shot on location.
Golden Globe-winner Claire Foy told The Local in a recent interview that she “absolutely loved being here”, singling out Stockholm's parks and cardamom buns as her city highlights.
