    Snärjebäcken (The Snärje Stream) is a stream in the province of Småland. It has its origin between Alsterbro and Bäckebo and flows into the bay of Kalmar at Rockneby by the Baltic Sea. The name Snärje derives from snara - in English snare - a reference to an old fishing method. It flows through the grounds of Knapegård, a manor house situated in the parish of Ryssby outside Rockneby, which belonged to Count Odert Gabriel von Essen (1854-1915), Kreuger’s brother-in-law.
