There are only two words that English has adopted specifically from the Swedish language: ombudsman and smorgasbord. Ombudsman is a person who acts as a trusted intermediary between an organisation and some internal/external constituency as we Swedes will do pretty much anything to avoid a direct confrontation and it is most likely the reason why we hold a world record of 200 years of uninterrupted peace. And as much as we hate conflicts, we love sandwiches. Smörgåsbord in Swedish literally means “a table full of different sandwiches or varied food” but is in English usually used as a metaphor for a wide range of something, and in this issue of Scene we would like to present you with a delicious smorgasbord of some of our favourite articles from previous issues.
