Is there any interest in this blog?

June 24, 2010 5 comments

Hello,

As you see I havn’t updated this blog in well over a year. Still it gets a great deal of visitors.

I am therefore wondering if there is any interest from you, the visitors, in a rebirth of this blog? Do you want to see more posts about all the crazy things that Swedes do?

The falling economy has hit Sweden

April 9, 2009 Leave a comment

This is what it has come to. Cars are too expensive so pimping shopping carts is the all new rage in Sweden. Kids all over the place put all their efforts in making the utlimate mobile party machine.

I am just waiting for the pimped baby strollers and walkers.

Dangerous to be curtious in Sweden

March 21, 2009 Leave a comment

Article in Swedish

Short summary: The man has just been to a night club at Möllevången in Malmö in november last year when he passed two people. When the man said ‘hello’ to them while passing the two men became aggressive. An argument arosed and the man got punched in the face. When he tried to run away they chased him and beat him unconcious.

While in the rest of the world it is curtious to great people, in Sweden it is taken as offensive behavior that requires a good beat down so that people learn their manners.

The Crazy Swede is back!

September 1, 2008 1 comment

Sorry for the hiatus, but in Sweden we have 8 weeks of paid vacation, so I did what every Swede does; I went on a booze cruise to Finland and ended up in Thailand sipping Mai Thais with some girls (or boys, I never really learned to tell a difference, or really cared either).

So look forward to more insights into the everyday life of the Swedish people.

This time the reporters at the paper invastigates a claim that the mens clothing store Dressman has hidden nazi symbols in their store.

Swedish investigative journalism

July 13, 2008 2 comments

The largest evening paper in Sweden is Aftonbladet. One of the reasons for this might be the cutting edge journalism that is displayed on their website. I have translated the article so that everyone can enjoy the pulitzer prize winning stuff that Aftonbladet is made of (I have really tried to make a fair translation keeping the grammatical errors).

One gets really angry

The speed camera caught Johan, 44, on picture

Johan Spennare, 44, was on his way home to Kumla after a day in Gothenburg.

And didn’t keep check of his spedometer.

– I was kind of tired in the evening and then came a flash, he says.

A speed camera had taken a snap shot of Johan Spennares driving while he was driving 98 km/h on a road with a speed limit of 90 km/h.

–  One mostly gets really upset, but there is no one to direct the anger towards.

The speeding occured last summer. Johan Spennare thinks that the 1500 kr fine was quite hefty. But they have had an effect on him.

– After this I bought a GPS that gives a warning for speed cameras. But I also drive slower now. One gets an eye opener.

After reading an article like this one can simply understand what makes Aftonbladet the leading evening paper in Sweden. The urgency of last years news of a man being caught by a speed camera.
