You are absolutely correct. Swedes hate to speak, I had a meeting of swedish people plus non swedes at a pub. The Swedes sat separately from us and never said a word. Some of them did not even speak to the other Swedes.

When I asked for the boat times at Stockholm at the ticket counter, I got rude answers and no time schedule! When I asked where I should board the boat, the woman at the entrance turned away and said something I could not hear. And she was the person who was supposed to check tickets and let people board the boat!

I have been rejected from Jobs in Sweden - one said that it was because I do not understand Swedish culture! And I was applying for a software programmer's job! They saw my name on the email and decided I did not understand their culture and therefore cannot program software.

Swedish people I worked with (except one) never acknoledged me (no hellos , no goodbyes). The one that talks to me hates the whole world and complains most of the time. He gets upset when I show emotion. I once said that the music was good and he got soo angry.

Swedes are a miserable lot. The only good thing I can say is that they are not too violent. But who knows - nobody Swedish shows any emotion or anything towards me.
