Dynamite is an album by Swedish singer-songwriter Stina Nordenstam, released in 1996. The album marked a turning point in her career as she experimented with introspective lyrics and darker musical tones, away from her jazz-influenced earlier albums.

Two of the songs on the album references the real-world murders of children, "Mary Bell" (Mary Bell, aged eleven, killed two children aged three and four) and "This Time, John" (John Hron, aged 14, was beaten and killed by neo-Nazis).
