A quiet teenager leaves her big house in the country to visit her older sister in Stockholm where she learns to enjoy wine and sex. An early vehicle for 70s sexpot Christina Lindberg, Maid in Sweden offers little of interest to those immune to her charms. Fans of the Swedish exploitation star, however, will be rewarded with frequent nude scenes, from the opening credits on.
Inga (Lindberg) lives in a large home in rural Sweden with her bourgeois parents. Her sister, Greta (Monica Ekman), invites her to Stockholm where she lives – unbeknownst to their parents - with her reptilian boyfriend Karsten (Krister Ekman). On Inga’s second night in town, Karsten and Greta get blasted on hashish and wine. Inga watches them making love which stirs fevered flashbacks, most notably the time she was rescued from being sexually assaulted by a group of men in a bar, only to have her female rescuer maul her. The next morning, Greta and Karsten plan a double date with Inga and Bjorn (Leif Naesland), which they later bow out of at the last minute. After a night of drinking and dancing, Inga finds herself in Bjorn’s apartment where he forces her to submit to him. No longer frightened by her sexuality –in fact, she embraces it a little excessively - Inga spends the rest of her visit either having sex with Bjorn or taking long baths or showers. Left alone with Karsten during the last of these baths, Karsten jumps on her in the tub despite her (very mild) protestations. Dallying so long they miss Inga’s train, Greta catches them in flagrante tub and freaks out. Inga takes the train home and goes back to her schoolwork.
Though somewhat marred by a horrible pop soundtrack -- the songs make banal comments on the action -- it all adds up to a better than average period sexploitation film, with nice footage of Stockholm and an especially sexy turn by Lindberg.
