Barracuda Queens True Story

As mentioned above, Barracuda Queens is loosely based on a true story of the infamous Lidingöigan gang or Lidingö League. Talking about the real life Barracuda Queens or The Lidingöligan, they were totally different from the women shown in the Netflix series. In fact, The Lidingöligan consisted of men and no women. In the 1990s, Lidingöligan targeted luxurious homes of Sweden's wealthier neighbourhoods, including their own home turf of Lidingö, as well as Djursholm where Barracuda Queens is set and Danderyd.

Notably, The Lidingöligan robbery style was also unique. After they had packed the stolen goods into their family cars, the gang would often share a champagne toast and leave behind the empty flutes as their calling card. As per Swedish media reports, there were around 50 burglaries and 20 car thefts that the Swedish police believed to be connected to the Lidingöligan, however, they went years without the evidence to catch them, as the Lidingöigan racked up goods with an estimated total value north of £20million. Reports further stated that in the 2000s, a number of suspects were arrested on suspicion of their links with the Lidingöigan, and certain members of the league were sentenced for their crimes. However, the Police struggled to find a concrete link between the suspects and the burglaries
