Fjugesta is a locality and the seat of Lekeberg Municipality, Örebro County, Sweden, with 2,033 inhabitants in 2010.[1]

Fjugesta is the hometown of Southeastern Louisiana University international English writing teacher Birgitta Ramsey.[2]

In Sweden, Fjugesta is widely identified with "Fjugesta-mordet" (the Fjugesta murder), for which Swedish Olympic athlete Olle Möller was convicted.[3]

Compared to many settlements of its size, Fjugesta has a very rich history of local business and industry. Currently it has multiple repair shops for automotive veichles and tune-up stores, but also multiple independent carpeting businesses.
