Karin Inger Monica Nilsson (born 4 May 1959 in Kisa) is a Swedish actress and singer. [1] She is a former child actress.

She is primarily known for her portrayal of Pippi Longstocking in the Swedish-produced TV series of the same name during 1969[2] which was later compiled, re-dubbed into English, and released as two feature films in 1969. In 1970, she reprised her role of Pippi in two subsequent feature films. She currently works as a secretary in Stockholm, occasionally taking small stage roles.

In 2000 the Swiss director Xavier Koller convinced her to take a role in his film Gripsholm, based on a novel by Kurt Tucholsky.[citation needed]

In 2007 she appeared on the German TV-channel ZDF as the forensic pathologist Ewa in the TV-series ”Der Kommissar und das Meer” (English: The Commissioner and the Sea).

In 2009, Nilsson was a celebrity contestant on Kändisdjungeln.


In 1975 Nilsson received a TP de Oro award in the "Most Popular Personage" category[3] for her role in Pippi Longstocking TV series.
