It's the new year and I thought this book would be a fantastic way to recenter my outlook on life. After finishing, I was trying to imagine who this book was written for; I suppose a 10 to 12 year old is probably the best audience. It's a collection of self-evident lists strung together with some kitschy advice. As a grown up it's a little bit condescending - actually super condescending. At a much younger age, maybe just exiting Elementary School, the lists of advice might be just right!

I don't believe there was a single insight here that I haven't heard a hundred times. just because a person moves to a nordic country doesn't mean that person has anything valuable to say about the traditions he or she has adopted. this felt amateurish. Very. and the narrator's monotone voice didn't help. only took it from annoying to boring and back again. Shame, because I know many Swedes and their traditions are quite interesting. If this is one's first exposure, it would be hard not to walk away feeling empty. believe me, it's the book, not the Lagom!
