    HSB Turning Torso is the tallest skyscraper in Sweden and the Nordic countries, situated in Malmö, Sweden, located on the Swedish side of theÖresund strait. Upon completion, it was the tallest building in Scandinavia. It is presently the third tallest residential building in Europe, after the 264 metre (866 ft) Triumph Palace in Moscow and the 212 metre Sky Tower in Wrocław. A similar, taller skyscraper featuring a 90° twist is theInfinity Tower, currently under construction in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Prior to the construction of Turning Torso, the 86 metre (282 ft)Kronprinsen had been the city's tallest building.

    It was designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and officially opened on 27 August 2005. The tower reaches a height of 190 metres (623 feet) with 54 stories
