As a norwegian I can relate to much of this. We are similar in many ways :) I also lived a year in Stockholm and can confirm all things said in this article. I don’t know if five weeks vacation is minimum by law, but most peope practice it.

Queues in Sweden are amazing. We have much to learn here. They are incorporated and simply work!

The Jante law is the biggest bullshit law that ever existed and it should be silenced and put to death with fire. It is one of the worst things that ever hit Scandinavia. It basically tells you to contstrain yourself in all ways possible. Awful law…

We have the same tax level as Sweden and most people I knlw gladly pay their taxes for free healthcare, free education etc.
