Norrmalmstorg is a square in central Stockholm. The square connects shopping streets Hamngatan and Biblioteksgatan and is the starting point for tram travellers with the Djurgården line. Close to the southwest is the park Kungsträdgården.

In the Swedish edition of Monopoly, Norrmalmstorg is the most expensive lot.

The square is famous for the Norrmalmstorg robbery which gave name to the Stockholm syndrome.
The Norrmalmstorg robbery was a bank robbery and hostage crisis best known as the origin of the term Stockholm syndrome. It occurred at the Norrmalmstorg eastern square in 1973. It was the first criminal event in Sweden covered by live television.

The most widely publicized myth about the robbery, or rather about the Stockholm syndrome, was that one or both robbers became engaged to their captives. This is not true, and may stem from a false friend in the phrase “att engagera sig i någon”. In Swedish this means “taking interest in someone”. It does not mean “to become engaged to someone” (which would be “att förlova sig med någon”).
