Carl-Johan ("Loa") Falkman (born July 24, 1947) is a Swedish baritone singer and actor.[1]

After studying music, Falkman made his first major performance on the Royal Swedish Opera in 1973.

In the 1990 Melodifestivalen (Swedish preselection contest for the Eurovision Song Contest), Falkman got the last place with his song "Symfonin" ("The Symphony"). He often plays pompous, vile characters like Wall-Enberg in Jönssonligan, Tillström in Newsmakers or Factory Owner Persson in Kronjuvelerna.
