a 64-year-old man in sweden has been convicted of hate speech for posting a cartoon to a private facebook group
For those whose swedish is a little rusty, the dialogue reads: 
“Grandchild?” 
“No, this is my new wife!”

the cartoon was drawn by Jan-Erik Ander

In my recollection, Norrlands Guld is pretty good. Of course, the consumption of beer sometimes affects once recollection.

Polish firemen will help to fight forest fires in Sweden

Apparently the locals come to welcome them and hang Polish flags in the windows... Anyway, these kind of fires happen regularly in Poland. Hopefully, their experience will help. Payback time for the Deluge ;-)

As far as I can tell, she is not into motor boats. Wind, yes. Oars, yes. Outboard engines, not so much so. Not sure about her stance on crown jewels, though.
