Snapphanar is a 2006 Swedish, Danish, Lithuanian, Finnish and Norwegian co-produced adventure semi-historical TV miniseries. While the plot took place completely in Sweden, only 10 percent of the show was filmed in Sweden, while other scenes were filmed in Lithuania (likely due the cheaper production), which likely influenced the choice of the weapons shown in the movie.

Note: Snapphanar (or Snapphane) is the international name of the show, a word of Swedish origin that doesn't translate into english.

The following weapons were used in the film Snapphanar:
