Nils Börje Ahlstedt (born 21 February 1939) is a Swedish actor who has worked extensively with the world famous director Ingmar Bergman in films like Fanny and Alexander (1982), The Best Intentions (1992), Sunday's Children (1992) and Saraband (2003). Ahlstedt has also worked with the directors Bo Widerberg and Kay Pollak.

Börje Ahlstedt was born in Stockholm. He went to the school of the Royal Dramatic Theatre 1962-1965 and has belonged to the ensemble of the theatre since then.

Early in his acting career, Ahlstedt starred in the films I Am Curious (Yellow) (1967) and I Am Curious (Blue) (1968).

Ahlstedt has also been in plays and films based on the dramas written by August Strindberg as well as in films based on the children’s books by Astrid Lindgren, for instance playing the father of Ronia in Ronia the Robber's Daughter.

At the 26th Guldbagge Awards he won the award for Best Actor for his role in The Rabbit Man.

In January 2006 the American newspaper USA Today suggested that Ahlstedt should be nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in Saraband, with the comment "He shows you what it's like to be an aging version of a man who was already broken in his 20s".

Ahlstedt has been married to Birgitta Hermann since 1965.

In 2013 Ahlstedt appears as "Pápá Fouras", the new Swedish version of "Père Fouras", in the 15th season of Fångarna på Fortet (the Swedish version of French game show, Fort Boyard) on TV4. Ahlstedt is seen inside the fort's Watch Tower and sets riddles for certain contestants; if the contestants give the correct answer, they receive a key.

The film is structured around ten acts with a prologue and epilogue. It opens with the camera on Marianne standing by a table covered with photographs. It is a well-lit room, and she addresses the viewer. She picks one picture up after another; they are in no particular order, being just heaped all over the table. Some make her smile, or elicit a comment or a sigh. But then she picks up a photograph of her husband, prompting her to reminisce about how they had been more or less happy, and how they'd broken up. She goes on to recall how his second marriage failed, while she was already married to a second husband herself, and then when her second husband died (by flying a glider off somewhere and disappearing), she reflects that it would be nice to see her first husband again.
