"My Lisa Karolina Nilsson" (born August 13, 1970, in Tyresö) is a Swedish singer. She is perhaps best known in Sweden for her 1992 hit, ''Himlen runt hörnet'', produced by Mauro Scocco and Johan Ekelund. It was released in English in 1995, titled ''Ticket to Heaven''. She has released three subsequent albums, ''Till Morelia'' in 1995, ''Viva'' in 2000 and ''Små Rum'' in 2002, all in Swedish. A greatest hits compilation, ''Samlade sånger'' followed in 2003 and contained two new songs. Prior to ''Himlen runt hörnet'' she had released two English language albums, ''Lean On Love'' in 1989 and ''Indestructible'' in 1991.
Nilsson's style ranges from out and out pop music to soul-inflected ballads and dance tracks on her earlier albums to a more mature jazz feel in her more recent work, perhaps reflecting familial connections as her father Gösta Nilsson is a jazz pianist.
She has recently moved into acting with appearances in the Swedish TV sitcom, ''Cleo'', and a role in the Swedish film ''Paradiset'' made by British-born director Colin Nutley.
