Soulful sadness

A common trait among Swedish people is a deeply felt svårmod, a dark melancholy born out of long winters, high taxes, and a sense of being stuck far out on a geo-political and socio-economic limb. They brood a lot over the meaning of life in a self-absorbed sort of way without ever arriving at satisfactory answers.


Love all

The Swedes indulge in sport for leisure and sex for pleasure. Some people treat sex as a sport in order to combine leisure with pleasure, and thus save time and energy.


Nurture nature

The Swedes have a dream: to save Nature from Man. This is more than just a vision-it's as close to a passion as the Swedes ever get.


Net loss

Becoming rich in Sweden has never been easy. As Ingmar Bergman found out, even millionaires can have difficulties making ends meet when income tax is levied at 102%.

    Quite refreshing

    Some of the Swedish traits I have been aware of in advance, others was interesting to read and third were outright hilarious. Good read
