i think weak 189 is his height that he have been described in sweden all the time. Looks 4 cm taller than adewale and 2 cm taller than will smith. 6 foot 2 1/4 is a fair height for him. Looks like a 6 foot 2 dude that sometimes can pass for 6 fot 3 so probably is a little over 6 ´2

187cm is too low. He looks too tall to be under 6ft2. I was watching a bit of the new season of House of Cards and he made Spacey look under 5ft9. He gives a taller impression than Corey Stoll (6ft1½-2) did. Honestly, he can appear like a 6ft3-4 guy. A very tall looking 6ft2 guy

Rob, you think hes a strong 6'2?
Editor Rob: at times he can look that range, but other times just about 6ft 2

Joel Kinnaman probably claims 189 cm himself - but I agree with this listing. Actually 187-188 cm range is more likely than a 189 cm guy.

I think he could have been under listed here. Previous listing got him at 6'2.5 he looks it in the darkest hour and the killing

Fluffi, i don't know about 6'1 flat but Alexander can certainly make him look 187 at most! So a 6'2 listing is not that bad, but he certainly isn't over 6'2...

Philadelphia metro listed him as 6'1. Looks like a strong 6'2 to me :)

That Rampage Clover guy always seem to want all guys to be taller than they really are. Joel real does look shorter than 6'2. Or Alexander Skarsgård is tallar than 6'5. He looks barely 6'1 in the picture with Skarsgård. Might be weird angles etc. though...

6'2.25 looked next to Will Smith, 187 cm out of the question, Joel solid 6'2
joe said on 15/Aug/15
he seems to be 6'2 solids

Ron, have you seen Safe House?
I think he edged out Reynolds.
[Editor Rob: yes but can't remember their scenes]
Lmeister said on 20/Jul/15
I doubt that Joel is a full 6ft2. He is a few centimeters shorter than his Johan Falk(tv series)co-star Jens Hultén(189cm). I'd give Joel 186cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/May/15
Well, he looks 6ft2-6ft3 beside Neeson
berta said on 13/May/15
Im frrom sweden and Before he was big in usa you Always read ( haha not Always) but in a few papers in sweden that he is 189. And just about 6 month ago there was a interview with Gustaf Skarsgård were they described him "smal och 193 cm lång" in English that is " thin and 6 foot 4 tall" I dont Think he is that tall. But maybe he clams 193 ore they just thought he was that height
joe 193cm night
said on 25/Apr/15
Rob,do you think this can Gustaf above the mark of 6'2.75 (190) or strong 190cmClick Here
[Editor Rob: I believe the 190cm has come from Gustaf himself and that to me is what he typically looks, just about 6ft 3.]
Sam said on 1/Apr/15
Yeah, he's at least 2 inches, probably more like 2.5 inches, under Alexander Skarsgard and was quite even with Ryan Reynolds in Safe House, the guy's no more than 6'2" even.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/15
If he's 6ft2 flat then Neeson struggles with 6ft3 which I doubt
Andrea said on 27/Mar/15
Don't know about Liam, but Alexander Skarsgard has near 3 inches over him! A 6'2.5-6'3 Joel Kinnaman would make Alexander 6'5 and over, which i doubt!
said on 24/Mar/15
I also thought weak 6'3'' first due to his slim stature and relatively small head. But I now think he's more like 6'2''. Here with 6'4'' Alexander Skarsgard Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Mar/15
Looking at pictures of his upcoming movie w/h Liam Neeson, Run All Night...dude looks barely shorter. Either Neeson is below 6ft3 today or this guy is 6ft2½-3 minimum
Andrea said on 8/Mar/15
If he's a full 6'2, Alexander is close to 6'5!
S.J.H said on 7/Mar/15
6'1.75 or 6'2. some site still list him at 6'2.5
Tommo said on 17/Feb/15
Looks absolutely gigantic on The Killing, surprised by seeing this, looks like he should be around 6'4! Shows you how friggin tall Skarsgard is.
said on 16/Nov/14
Rob, which is more likely for Joel, a fraction under or over 6ft2?
[Editor Rob: I'd stick the the 6ft 2 itself rather than above or below]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/14
Edged out Ryan Reynolds in Safe House...
Andrea said on 30/Sep/14
Welcome back, Rampage. I missed your "upgrading skills" so much :)
He actually could be 187, let alone 189! He can look 3 big inches shorter than 6'4-6'4.5 Alexander Skarsgard, so he's likely a weak 6'2!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/14
He can look 6ft3 on The Killing.
LAnative said on 24/Jul/14
Watching The Killing again since the new season is about to come out. He positively towers over Ms. Enos - at least a foot taller, and the dude has a slouchy way about him in that role. So, either Mirielle Enos is the size of my 8-year-old, or he really is 6'2".
said on 14/May/14
Hey Rob what do you make of these photos??? Has Michael Keaton resorted to wearing lifts or is Joel 6'1" range, kinda like Samuel Jackson??!
said on 5/May/14
Hey Rob, he does seem almost 2 inches shorter than Billy Campbell and at least 2 1/2 inches shorter than Alex skarsgard. Might be that his fairly thin frame might make him appear taller?? What's the chances of him being 6'1.5" or a tad over???
[Editor Rob: 187 range is possible]

He's pretty clearly a tall guy. I mean, he absolutely towered Gary Oldman for the premiere events for Robocop - though, Gary might still be a bit smaller than even currently listed. But, then I see pics like this with Jimmy Kimmel:
I can only assume, then, that tthis is about as good of proof as you need that Jimmy at least sometimes wears lifts, because there is no way Joel is any smaller than listed, right?
Alex said on 16/Mar/14
Pretty tall. I guess more like 189 or 6'2.5".

"Emily says on 28/Jul/13
Could it be that the Swedes all have a small head for their height? First Skarsgard, then Kinnaman, they're both very tall but have a small head for their height. " Could be, but I am a swede and I have a big head (maybe not for my height, but still). I am 190 cm
Many swedish guys are baby faced though...
jtm said on 27/Sep/13
we don't see their feet.

Here's a picture of Kinnaman and Ryan Reynolds standing straight with each other, looking similar height.
Mick said on 19/Aug/13
From the short scene in Safe House, and depending on whether you agree with this site that Ryan Reynolds is 6'2" (I do), this listing seems accurate. They looked fairly level to me.

He looks around 3 inches shorter than Alexander Skarsgard.
said on 25/May/13
Look at the photos of him standing next to 6'4 Billy Campbell. Click Here
He looks a good 3 inches shorter.

Hey Rob! Joel is described as 189 cm by his agent in Sweden. Click Here
berta said on 8/Apr/13
