Re: Sweden in the 80's

edd: Please I would love to have more details for both Sweden and 80s for us non-Swedes. Especially cultural domestic uniquenesses of Sweden in the 80s (in the Loop); i.e. I would never have known about Snus unless I hadn't been chatting to some Swedish smokers once, But also things such as would t...

P31 ANNIKA MALTEMAN : : something missing here ? :
"Still, the kings of old rest peacefully in
their mounds, she’s surrounded by history in the form
