Me, I Happen To Be A Swede Myself !!


My name is Olof Björner and I was born in Stockholm 1942.
I have three children in a previous marriage: Axel, Tore and Ylva, I now live with Agneta who has two daughters also in a previous marriage: Kajsa and Maria. Together we have ten grandchildren Matilda, Jonas, Joanna, Livia, Herman, Bianca, Saga, Harry, Sigge and Bosse.


I have been working with computers and programming since 1963. In the nineties I started my own consulting company specializing in security for healthcare applications. Twelve years ago Agneta & I decided to slow down (ha!) and moved to Filipstad, a small country town in the middle of Sweden where we bought a book store. Sad to say the book store is now closed and I’m retired. My wife then worked as a county business advisor for five years but has now also retired.


Started listening to Bob Dylan in the early sixties. I collect official and unofficial recordings and books.

Other favorite musicians and groups include Ryan Adams, Cannonball Adderly, Louis Armstrong, Chet Baker, Count Basie, Beck, Bob Hund, Marie Boine, Bright Eyes, Greg Brown, Camper van Beethoven, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, John Coltrane, Elvis Costello,  Cracker, Sheryl Crow, Bobby Darin, Miles Davis, dEUS, Nicolai Dunger, Einstürzende Neubauten, Duke Ellington, Esbjörn Svensson Trio, Jerry Garcia, Lionel Hampton, Ed Harcourt, John Hiatt, Peter Himmelman, Barb Jungr, Lill Lindfors, Ulf Lundell, Ola Magnell, Denise Marie, Iain Matthews, Maria McKee, Mills Blue Rhythm Band, Van Morrison, Bill Morrissey, Jelly Roll Morton, Elliott Murphy, David Murray, Wilbur de Paris, Art Pepper, Pixies, Phish, Anders F Rönnblom, Frank Sinatra, Artie Shaw, Bruce Springsteen, Jack Teagarden, Richard Thompson, Cornelis Vreeswijk, Värttinä, Tom Waits, Waterboys, Wilco, Steve Wynn, Yonder Mountain String Band, Neil Young, John Zorn.
