The] Swede was written with the intent of introducing Sweden and Swedes to English speakers. It's personal and informal, and is inspired by the author's perspective of a country he loves dearly. Sm rg sbord, ombudsman and of course fika are words that were eventually adopted into English; and The] Swede will introduce you to the rest--from allemansr tt to housewives, hugging, humor and husesyn--what does it mean to be un-Swedish? What about Swedish sin, is it a real thing? Are Swedes boring? Are they serious? Does a person bring bananas to a dinner party? Over 250 brief chapters, usefully organized like a dictionary, will make you a better Swede or at least better understand your Swedish friends, family or colleagues. Richly illustrated with humorous or explanatory drawings.
