How a Norwegian starts a vacuum cleaner


New Scandinavian Book

A picture named M2

We were recently contacted by Stephen Kling of THGC Publishing in St. Louis, Missouri. He and 42 international authors have recently published a two volume book on the Great Northern War, 1700-1721. Much of this history involves King Charles XII of Sweden, a fascinating if not controversial figure. Charles is recognized as one of the Great Captains of history and was a legend to his Swedish soldiers. He was mysteriously killed in 1718 and his body has been exhumed multiple times to determine the cause of death- a lucky Norwegian bullet or from a Swedish soldier wanting to end the war?

SVT World turns 25 and wants to celebrate

SVT Worlds kanaler
I do not know about you but I get my nostalgia kick by watching Swedish television here in the US. I love to see everything Swedish, such as architecture, nature, design, people and foodie shows of course makes me feel good and connected to my roots. SVT World has an exclusive offer in the US and Canade for their Internet Protocol Television, IPTV, this year as they celebrate 25 years broadcasting Swedish programs abroad. Via a special box provided by SVTs service partner  you can stream programs to your TV up to 48 hours after they were broadcasted in Sweden.

Snus - a Swedish Quintessential

A picture named M2

Follow the snus or snoose and you will find the Swedes. This tobacco product made to perfection by generations of Swedes for centuries is still going strong with a big number of users in Sweden. Snus is made of grind tobacco, water and salt. Tobacco from all over the world is blended for different varieties of snus. This product can not be compared with either the US chewing tobacco or snuff as the Swedish snus is spit free and also, just like Swedish coffee, much stronger than its American relatives. First time users often get so dizzy they have to lie down and some have suggested it would even be called Swedish marijuana.
