She released two singles in 1987 and 1989,|however, she disappeared from the music industry for fifteen years.|In 2004 Linda took part in the fourth and the final season of Fame Factory but she went|on the program at the same time as her song “Alla flickor” (All girls) being|selected to participate at Melodifestivalen 2005. Her song surprised everyone and she|took part in the Melodifestivalen final after receiving sufficient votes in the|‘Andra Chansen’ (Second Chance) round. She finished in last place, scoring 15|jury points but receiving 0 points from the Swedish public’s televoting. The single|reached #8 in the Swedish charts and a few months “Diamanter”, a song very|similar to Alla flickor, reached #32.|One year later she appeared again in Melodifestivalen. Her song, “Jag ljuger så|bra”, written first for Jessica Andersson, finished in the top two of the first heat|and, therefore, was entered into the final.

Whilst Linda may not have received many votes from|the public the single rose to #2 in the Swedish charts, making it her greatest hit.|Days before the Melodifestivalen 2006 final, she released her first album,|“Ingenting att förlora” (#4) and months later the second single from the|album, “Kan du se” debuted at #7, though did not chart the next week.|In 2007 she released a new single, “Värsta schlagern”, a parody on tradition|Melodifestivalen entries. The song is rumoured to have been entered into Melodifestivalen|2007 but was not selected as one of the 32 songs to compete for the title in the live|shows. The song is a duet together with Markoolio. Linda participated at Melodifestivalen|2008, competing in Heat 4 (Karlskrona) on the 1 March 2008, where she directly qualified|for the final round.
