Söder Torn (English: Söder Tower) is a highrise building at Fatburstrappan 18 by Fatbursparken on Södermalm in Stockholm. The building was originally designed to be 40 floors, but when it was finished in 1997 it was only 86 metres tall and contained 24 floors of flats. Söder Torn is, shared with Skatteskrapan, the tallest residential building in Stockholm.

The building was originally designed by Danish architect Henning Larsen, but he left the project in protest of the compromises made during the planning.
