sweden’s green party to vote for left-wing deputy speaker candidate
with monday’s parliamentary vote to select a new speaker of parliament appearing to be settled, with moderate mp andreas norlén expected to be awarded the post, the question of selection of the first and second deputy speakers must also be settled. the green party has said it will reject the sweden democrat candidate for the post, björn söder, and vote for the left party’s lotte johnsson fornarve as second deputy speaker. the environmentalist group has also said it will vote for social democrat åsa lindestam as speaker, even though norlén is expected to win that vote after the sweden democrats confirmed their support on saturday. usually, the speaker is a member of sweden's largest political party or bloc, meaning that after the september 9th election, a social democrat candidate would have been expected. the role is a key one, as it is the speaker who puts a proposal for the new prime minister to parliament. the speaker of sweden’s riksdag parliament is assisted by three deputy speakers who are also elected by a vote in the chamber. traditionally, the second, third and fourth largest parties nominate one of their mps for these offices. the populist sweden democrats (sd) party won 62 seats in the election, while the left and right of centre ‘blocs’ - party alliances led by the social democrats and moderates - won 144 and 143 of the total 349 seats respectively in the parliament. “we do not want the sweden democrats to influen...

frustrated ibrahimovic coy on galaxy future
swedish star ibrahimovic has made a prolific start to his mls career, scoring 17 goals in 22 games since joining the galaxy from manchester united in march. however the 36-year-old striker's efforts have not been enough to transform the galaxy's fortunes, with the club languishing in the bottom half of the western conference and struggling to make the playoffs. ibrahimovic, who has a contract through the 2019 season, was reluctant to confirm his plans for next year, according to comments in the los angeles times. `i don't know. this i have to discuss,` ibrahimovic said when asked about 2019. `this is not the moment to talk about that. it's something i'll discuss with the club. what they want, what i want. so let's see.` ibrahimovic said while he was pleased with his fitness, he was less happy with the galaxy's results. `i'm happy, i'm physically strong, i feel good. i'm producing, so i just need to (be) winning games, and then everything is perfect,` he said. `it's easy to talk, but we need to do it.` ibrahimovic cited the galaxy's failure to strengthen their defence this year as being behind the club's struggles. so far the club has shipped 59 goals in 29 games, the second worst goals conceded tally in the league. `conceding so many goals, you don't win,` ibrahimovic said. `you cannot win the competition like that. it's difficult, and that comes from everybody, not only the defence.`read also: zlatan...

swedish company removes sami costume from website after criticism
the company received backlash over the costume after images of the costume and accompanying text on partykungen's website were spread on social media on friday, sameradion & svt sápmi reports. “if you want to represent the native people of sweden, norway and finland, you can dress as a sami at you next fancy dress party,” the product text read. partykungen was subsequently criticised for cultural appropriation, in particular in response to a section in the ad that read `experience what it's like to be a sami`, according to the sameradion report. “we regret that these costumes were published on our site and would like to apologise to those who consider this offensive. we completely understand the reactions to this and have therefore chosen to remove these (products) from our range,” partykungen director joel svesson told sameradion via text message.read also: sami village wins court battle and compensation from swedish state

sweden democrats to vote for alliance candidate as parliamentary speaker
the announcement means that andreas norlén of the moderate party is expected to be chosen as parliamentary speaker. “of the two nominated candidates from the social democrats and moderates, we have made the active choice to vote for the moderate candidate. we believe the moderates are the party best-placed to lead a government in any constellation, given the parliamentary situation,” sweden democrat (sd) leader jimmie åkesson said in a statement. the sd leader said that attempts had been made “as far as possible in this situation” to follow the tradition of giving the speaker’s position to the largest party in government. usually, the speaker is a member of sweden's largest political party or bloc, meaning that after the september 9th election, a social democrat candidate would have been expected. the role is a key one, as it is the speaker who puts a proposal for the new prime minister to parliament. åkesson’s party won 62 seats in the election, while the left and right of centre ‘blocs’ - party alliances led by the social democrats and moderates - won 144 and 143 of the total 349 seats respectively in the riksdag parliament. tobias billström, parliamentary group leader with the moderates, welcomed the announcement. “we welcome broad support for andreas norlén in the parliament,” billström told tt in a written message. of the smaller centre-right parties, the partners of the moderate party in the so-called allia...

malmö residents harassed by folkets park drug pushers
this isn't one of sweden's `especially vulnerable areas`, but the street bordering folkets park, one of central malmö's most popular amusement spots. it is also less than a hundred metres from the new office building where computer gaming giant massive entertainment aims to move.  `the latest thing that happened was only last wednesday at 4am,` one of the residents of the next-door, seven-story apartment building told the local.  `i was sitting in the apartment and i saw this screaming outside and three middle eastern lads and an east african fellow, they grabbed this man and dragged him into the children's playground opposite and gave him a terrible beating.` the man, who moved to sweden from another european country to be with his swedish girlfriend, called the police. but by the time they arrived, the group had disappeared.  the apartment block, owned by property company akelius, first started to see problems after police installed cameras around an area then known by locals as `knarkrondellen`, or ‘the drugs roundabout', at the other corner of the park.  to escape the cameras, the gang occupied this building, storing drugs inside by pushing up panels in the ceilings, and hiding out on a roof terrace used as a playground by the local kindergarten.  when residents went public with the problem, publishing an article in the local sydsvenskan newspaper, the two men named in the article were beaten in an apparent revenge attack...

interview: 'india and sweden are very different in size, but similar in principles'
when you start talking about sweden in india, what connotations do people have? i think on the whole it's overwhelmingly positive. we're very happy about that, we're also emphasizing many of the values and innovations; things about swedish life that we think are of interest to indians. i mention innovation right at the outset because it is so important to both countries. if you look at one example, when prime minister narendra modi travelled to sweden, he and [swedish prime minister stefan] löfven agreed on a joint action plan, which has innovation as a key focus. india is modernizing very quickly; the government has delivered on a lot of economic and other reforms in the past few years. india climbed 30 points in the international ease of doing business ranking from the world bank, which was one of the biggest improvements, so they are also encouraging international partners to come to india. swedish companies have been there for a long time: ericsson has been established there for 115 years and now we say there are roughly 200 swedish companies who are invested in and present in india, creating nearly two million jobs, including indirectly. how is sweden typically reported on by indian media; does it gain much interest, and have you come across misrepresentations of sweden the kind seen in other countries? india has a large media market and a great tradition of free speech and newspapers. there's a large interest in sweden in general, covering a lot of sec...

medical age tests on asylum seekers likely to have 'misclassified' minors: study
researchers found that of those tested, migrant children were far more likely to be misclassified as adults than vice versa, the findings published in the international journal of legal medicine by scientists at the chalmers technical university of gothenburg show. the swedish government ordered the national forensic medicine agency (rättsmedicinalverket) to start carrying out medical age tests in 2017 after doubts were raised over whether all those who were being processed as minors were in fact underage. age was crucial in determining how the asylum seekers' applications were processed, as unaccompanied minors can only be returned to their home countries if they have a family member or other guardian who can provide them with somewhere to live. the tests included x-rays of wisdom teeth, and mri scans of knee joints, which are then analyzed by dentists and radiologists. however, the gothenburg scientists behind the new study say that the combined method of teeth and knee tests were never tested for reliability, for example by testing the measures on people whose ages were known. in total, 9,617 men and 337 women underwent the tests in 2017, and according to the study, an estimated 15 percent of the males were under 18 years old. these children faced a 33 percent chance of being classified as adults, whereas adult men faced a seven percent likelihood of being classified as children. there are several reasons why the age of those who arrive in swed...

archaeologists find medieval seal on swedish island
the group found a fragment of a medieval seal on biskops arnö, in between uppsala and stockholm. `i was very lucky to make that discovery,` archaeologist maria lingström, one of the group of archaeologists which is linked to the swedish history museum, told the local. `the shaft for the pipeline was just one metre wide and about ten metres deep by the time i examined it. without a metal detector, i wouldn't have found it.` she said the find was particularly unusual because of its connection to the church; the fragment is believed to have belonged to archbishop petrus philippi, who died in august 1341, according to archivists. `only about fifty seal stamps that belonged to the clergy have been found so far in sweden,` said lingström. `this particular stamp was personal and the archbishop carried it with him at all times.` seals were used instead of signatures during the middle ages in order to authenticate documents, as well as for sealing documents or packaged. when philippi died in 1341, the stamp was most likely destroyed right after his death. `that was done to prevent people from impersonating the bishop by using his seal,` lingström explained. however, she doesn't expect to come across any more discoveries on the site, as the seal was found during a small excavation in connection with pipeline construction, which has now been concluded.

interview: 'india and sweden are very different in size, but similar in principles'
when you start talking about sweden in india, what connotations do people have? i think on the whole it's overwhelmingly positive. we're very happy about that, we're also emphasizing many of the values and innovations; things about swedish life that we think are of interest to indians. i mention innovation right at the outset because it is so important to both countries. if you look at one example, when prime minister narendra modi travelled to sweden, he and löfven agreed on a joint action plan, which has innovation as a key focus. india is modernizing very quickly; the government has delivered on a lot of economic and other reforms in the past two years. india climbed 13 points in the international ease of doing business ranking from the world bank, which was one of the biggest improvements, so they are also encouraging international partners to come to india. swedish companies have been there for a long time: ericsson has been established there for 115 years and now we say there are roughly 200 swedish companies who are invested in and present in india, creating nearly two million jobs, including indirectly. how is sweden typically reported on by indian media; does it gain much interest, and have you come across misrepresentations of sweden the kind seen in other countries? india has a large media market and a great tradition of free speech and newspapers. there's a large interest in sweden in general, covering a lot of sectors – the opening of ikea was...

trains and ferries cancelled as storm approaches western sweden
storm knud is expected to hit the west coast on friday, with the swedish meteorological and hydrological institute (smhi) forecasting wind speeds of between 90 and 100 km/h on friday evening. a class-two warning has been issued for several western regions: skagerrak, bohuslän, göteborg, dalsland and western västergötland, with halland on a class-one warning after being downgraded from the higher level. but the stormy weather won't be limited to those areas, with heavy winds also expected in most of the rest of götaland and svealand. the forecast remains uncertain, with smhi noting that it may change over the course of the day, both in terms of the direction and the strength of the winds. rail and boat traffic has already been affected and further disruption may be announced later in the day. sweden's transport administration has cancelled trains on four stretches of track in western sweden, with the ban in place for almost 24 hours from 4pm on friday. the affected lines are uddevalla–strömstad, varberg–borås, borås–herrljunga and håkantorp–gårdsjö even traffic by boat has been affected. stena line has cancelled several ferry departures between sweden and denmark on friday, with the lines between gothenburg and frederikshavn as well as the varberg–grenå line facing disruption.

members' q&a: the local's guide to swedish parental leave
this article is available to members of the local. read more articles for members here. as a parent in sweden, you're entitled both to time off work to care for your child (parental leave or föräldraledighet) and money to help cover the costs of child-raising. the benefits are paid out not by your employer but by the swedish social insurance agency (försäkringskassan), which you need to register with and apply to in order to receive the payments.who is eligible for parental benefits? if you have a young child in sweden, you're likely to be eligible. parental benefit applies to those who are the parent of a child, or have custody of the child. it can also apply to people who live with a parent, in certain cases (such as if they are married or a registered partner, sambo, of the child's parent). as well as that, you need to be insured in sweden (this is usually the case for anyone living or working in the country) and taking time off work, study or job-seeking to stay with a child (who must live in sweden, an eea country, or switzerland).how much time can i take? the basic allowance for paid leave is 480 days of parental leave per child, so parents sharing custody will split that number and parents with sole custody have the full 480. parents with multiple children, ie twins or triplets, get an increased allowance: a total of 660 days for twins and 840 for triplets. but you don't need to take each allotted day as a full day. parents also have the op...

spotify just announced a move that could shake up the music industry
spotify, by far the biggest player in the fast-growing format of streaming, said that the feature for now is only in the test phase for select us-based independent artists who have secured their own copyrights. but the feature, if eventually put to scale, could in the long run drastically change the business decisions for artists who would not need to go through a label or one of the batch of new companies, such as tunecore, that provide uploading services for independent artists. spotify said artists would simply upload their songs to the platform, first seeing a preview of how it will look, with the swedish company automatically sending royalties each month. `you've told us time and time again that sharing your work with the world should be easier,` spotify said in a blog post addressed to artists. the handful of artists who have already been selected for the feature include noname, the chicago rapper who has won acclaim for her songs of african american women's struggles framed as telephone conversations, and michael brun, the haitian-american dj and producer known for his lively inter-cultural mixes. the new feature will be seen warily by record labels, which have reached licensing deals with spotify and have increasingly sought close partnerships with the company. but the move could reset spotify's relations with artists, many of whom have complained that they see little back even as streaming brings handsome profits to the industry. as s...

recipe: how to make swedish cardamom cake
1. pre-heat the oven to 175°c (50f, gas 4, fan 160c). 2. grease a 2¼ litre (10 cup) bundt with butter and then sprinkle the inside with dried breadcrumbs. 3. cream the butter and sugar until pale and creamy, about 3 minutes  on a moderate speed using an electric beater. 4. beat in the eggs, one at a time. 5. in a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and ground cardamom and then fold into the mixture. 6. mix in the milk and then carefully pour into the prepared bundt, traying to avoid creating any air pockets. tap the pan to remove any air bubbles and then tilt the pan gently, so that the batter runs up the sides. 7. bake for about an hour until it is golden brown, just beginning to pull away from the side of the bundt and a skewer poked into the cake comes out clean. 8. let the cake cool in the bundt for 10 minutes and then turn out on to a wire rack to cool completely. 9. when cold, transfer to a serving plate or board.leftovers? if there are any leftovers, the cake freezes well.tips - ground cardamom has a short shelf life, so for the best aroma and flavour buy cardamom pods and grind the seeds yourself. it is quite hard work and takes 10-15 minutes, but it is worth the effort. you will need about two tablespoons of cardamom pods to produce five teaspoons of ground cardamom. - swedes normally grease the inside of the bundt with butter and then dust it with dried breadcrumbs, but you can use baking spray (not ...

british comedies compete on the malmö stage
three english actors and one heavily anglicized swede were on wednesday evening putting the final touches to the piece of theatre they will premiere in malmö on friday night.  `the jacket on really works... zany,` jeremy thomas-poulsen, the danish-american director, calls out, adding in a bombastic voice. `if you want it, own it. move to paris and become an actor.`  quality street: a night at the theatre, which opens at malmö's bastionen theatre this friday, bills itself as `an evening of wit, drama, a smattering of music, classic bbc comedy moments, satire, sorrow, american humour and oodles of that wry, very british je-ne-sais-quoi`. but it's not even the only piece of `british je-ne-sais-quoi` on the malmö stage this week. the play that goes wrong, the hit farce devised by london's mischief theatre, is currently running, in translation, at nöjesteatern by the city's folkets park. read also: the day things went wrong for real in malmö version of the play that goes wrong `people in the south of sweden have that same sort of 'monty python' sense of humour,` cornelius löfmark, who plays max in the production, argues. `i think also in gothenburg, they have it, a british sense of humour.`  vanessa poole, the british co-founder of playmate theatre, the troupe behind quality street, is not so sure.  `i think we love to go for irony, sarcasm, wordplay, puns. it's a little bit more sophisticated,` she said. `the swedes...
