Signifying nothing

Sweden

Holy crap. For a country of only 9 million and some people, Sweden certainly punches above its weight.

Some Swedish companies you may have heard of: AstraZeneca, Ericsson, Electrolux, H&M, IKEA, Saab, Securitas, SAS group, Volvo…

And some notable people: Ingrid Bergman, Greta Garbo, Ingmar Bergman, Carolus Linnaeus, Alfred Nobel, Bjorn Borg, Sven Goran-Eriksson…

Sweden also has quite a collection of musical acts that you will have heard of. (if not actually that many you might like): Ace of Base, The Cardigans, Europe, Opeth, The Hives, The Knife, Yngwie Malmsteen… Oh and ABBA. Obviously.

Not bad eh?

Coming soon: Interesting people that have come from Belgium. (Or have I already posted that list?)
