I need a little help. Well...I have to do a school assignment about 1 thing from scandinavian culture. It could be anything-food,music,films,books ect. But I'm still pretty undecided. Any suggestions? :3

If you’re interested in books (and movies) maybe something about Scandinavian crime fiction, there are a lot of names beside Larsson and Mankell :). Swedish sweets are pretty curious too, but I’m not really into them (they have a kanelbullar day to “celebrate” their cinnamon rolls!)
