My first strong impressions of Sweden when i moved there 40 years ago are many.
I will try to illustrate some of them here.
When i moved to Sweden -77 there was one politician that had a very strong impact not only in Sweden but for the entire world as well. A person that was both loved and hated. A complicated but also brilliant politician who had the glow and the vision to try to make the world to be a better place to live.
some other wonderful person that gave me such a good introduction in the swedish society as well as the language were among others those 4 person. Ernst Hugo Järegård, Hasse Alfredson, Gösta Ekman and Tage Danielsson. Comedians, writers and some of the leaders within the stand-up comedy of the seventies.
