Sweden: Sort of Like an Ax in the Head

Stockholm

Mentioned Sweden on Common Sense and Whiskey the other day. Here's an article from last month called When Sweden Rules the World, which might be worth your time.

It calls this Baltic-Scandinavian-Nordic land

"… this anomalous, oblong nation of 9 million, wedged as comfortably as an axe into Europe’s forehead."

But it's a really positive look at the Swedish character. Really.

  1. Having lived in suburban Stockholm for over a year…nice place to visit, I wouldn’t want to live there. Axe in the head is a reasonable analogy. Jag ar ingensvensk. You have some nice work here.
