Lighthouse of the Week, December 14-20, 2014: Malmö, Sweden

This week's lighthouse actually doesn't work as a lighthouse anymore.  It's just for show in Malmö, Sweden.  But it's good-looking, and it's also octagonal, which makes it a bit unusual.

Here's what Lighthouses of Sweden (Scania) says about it:

1878. Inactive since 1983 (a decorative light is displayed). 20 m (66 ft) octagonal cast iron tower with lantern and gallery, mounted on an octagonal stone base. Tower painted white with two narrow red horizontal bands; the lantern dome is also red.
Three shots from various angles.
