The Swedish King’s Speech: THIS is not my country!
The King and Queen of Sweden (no, not Colin Nutley and Helena Bergström) are furious.
I am chocked by the cruelty and do not feel they represent the true image of Sweden.King Carl XVI Gustaf about Stieg Larsson’s Millenium book trilogy
The last time the King used his authority and condemned something was back when Norwegians clubbed seals (I’m talking about killing animals, not going clubbing with the singer Seal. That’s what the Germans do.“).
But I have to agree with him.
This is the first time EVER books have taken artistic liberties when it comes to Sweden! Right?
And the films don’t help either… No, I hope that everybody who see the Millenium films (Swedish originals or American remakes) don’t think we are like that! I mean…
Only 9 out of 10 Swedes I know studders and have weird blinking eye ticks like Mikael Nyqvist!
Why can’t they ever show it like it really is? Like in the video below?
