And Some History…

Inspectoren (the Inspector) was the title of the Spinning House director. The first inspector at Långholmen was Carl Magnus Lewin,1724-1726. Lewin introduced the quantum system according to which the spinning house inmates had to carry out a certain amount of work for the term of their punishment, such as to spin yarn for uniform fabrics. The prisoners who did not complete their piecework got “detention” until the work was done. Many inspectors were famous. So was even Hans Hansson Björkman (friends with C M Bellman). Björkman neglected his duties as director and was seldom sober at work. He felt most at home as an opera singer at Gustav III’s opera house. Björkman was called the Hercules of the spinning house after his favourite role in the opera.
