Additional information

Skavlan is a Norwegian-Swedish television talk show hosted by Norwegian journalist Fredrik Skavlan. It premièred in Sweden on Sveriges Television (SVT) in January 2009 and the first guests to appear on the show were former Prime Minister of Sweden Göran Persson and his wife Anitra Steen. On 8 May 2009, it was announced that Skavlan had been renewed for a second season. It was also announced that the show would no longer only be produced by SVT in Sweden; Skavlan would now be partly produced in Norway by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK). The first twelve episodes of Skavlan's second season were produced by SVT in Sweden, and the remaining twelve by NRK in Norway.

All four ABBA members have been guests on the show (individually!).

Benny was a guest on this episode and talked about feminism and promoted his latest project - writing the score for the film Cirkeln. Other guests on this episode were Minister of Culture Alice Bah and former director of the Nobel Institute, Geir Lundestad. 

Benny performed with The Hives on their latest single Blood Red Moon which was taken from the Cirkeln soundtrack.
