Not sure why the crackers who made this video have Grieg's In the Hall of the Mountain King (1876) in the background, but I'm sure they meant well, Grieg being Norwegian.
Speaking of Norway, her bicentennial is coming up -- two hundred years free of Sweden!
Of course other Scandinavian countries have their own problems with Sweden, who, in their own way, behave like the United States in North America or Iran in the Middle East.
Those familiar with Lars Von Trier's TV mini-series The Kingdom (1994) will recall how well the Danish writer/director dealt with the relationship between the staff of a Danish hospital and a visiting Swedish doctor.
