Concierge.com's insider take:

Few visitors realize that Acne Jeans's flagship store on Norrmalmstorg in central Stockholm is one of the most famous buildings in the country. Formerly a branch of Kreditbanken, this was the setting for the 1973 bank heist that introduced the world to the concept of Stockholm Syndrome. (Two robbers took four employees hostage and demanded money and a fast car; during the five-day siege that ensued, the hostages became emotionally attached to their captors, fearing them less than they did the police.) Now, the vaults are storerooms full of Acne's narrow-cut, low-waist jeans—currently the hottest brand to be seen in around town. Recently, a man came into the store asking to see the storeroom for old times' sake: He was one of the hostage-takers.
