This is not an easy question to answer because right now there's a lot of places fighting for that title. Stockholm is in the middle of a hamburger-related mania. But the three strongest contenders are Pubologi in Gamla stan (Old Town) and Allmänna Galleriet (AG) and Flippin' Burgers on Kungsholmen.
Pubologi is the small gastropub run by the team behind Djuret, a popular and much praised nose to tail-restaurant. The hamburger is also served at Tweed, the new bar in the same building.
Allmänna Galleriet is famous for its meat, and should not be missed. The hamburger might feel like a boring choice while reading the menu, but do not be fooled. If you like hamburgers, you will not be disappointed.
Flippin' Burgers was last autumns most popular restaurants, and the cookbook has been high on the charts in Sweden. They do not take bookings, so the line was about fifty meters when they opened at 17.00, and it is still smart to show up early if you want a seat. Owner Jon Widegren travelled all over the US to learn his craft, and it shows, both visually and in taste.
