She was born on December 6, 1950 in Gothenburg, Sweden to a working class family and was raised in Annedal, Gothenburg with her three brothers and one sister. While in high school, she studied Latin and had aspirations to one day study archaeology. At about the age of 18 and still in high school, Christina began her rise to exploitation royalty by posing in the buff for a few men's magazines including FIB Aktuellt and Lektyr after some bikini shots were published in local newspapers. She then went international, posing for Playboy, the French magazine Lui, the British Mayfair and in June of 1970 she became a Penthouse Pet.

Christina's acting debut was in the coming of age-sexploitation film Maid in Sweden (1969). After this, she several more exploitation films followed, many of which were filmed in Germany and Japan. As part of the marketing campaign for the film Exposed aka The Depraved (1970) she went on a publicity trip to Japan, which later resulted in an invitation to appear in Japanese exploitation films. She played a major supporting role in Norifumi Suzuki's Pink film classic Sex & Fury (1973). In 1972, she played the role of Frigga in Bo Arne Vibenius's controversial rape-revenge film Thriller: A Cruel Picture. Director Quentin Tarantino expressed his admiration for both the film and Lindberg's performance and Frigga served as an inspiration for Daryl Hannah's character in Tarantino's Kill Bill films. In Kill Bill he also borrowed elements from Sex & Fury.
In 1972 Christina fell in love with future husband Bo Sehlberg and eventually worked as a journalist for his aviation magazine, Flygrevyn. After he died in 2004, Christina took over and became editor-in-chief of Flygrevyn which is the largest aviation magazine in Scandinavia. In 2007 she announced that she would be starting an acting school.
