Mashup data sources

My movie data spike for a future windows Phone app included data from several different sources where I often used IMDB:s id as the common key. This mix of data is called a mashup.

“In Web development, a mashup is a Web page or application that uses and combines data, presentation or functionality from two or more sources to create new services. The term implies easy, fast integration, frequently using open APIs and data sources to produce enriched results that were not necessarily the original reason for producing the raw source data.” –  wikipedia.org

There exist loads of data sources to use and it is up to you to come up with new interesting combinations. As a developer it is also very useful and inspiring to have real data when creating mockups etc. I would like to share two great Swedish sites and one international listing data sources and mashups:
