The things they say in Ljusdal

Apparently they are a bit rude, to the extent that a councillor is pushing for legislation for "a zero tolerance approach to this sort of thing [in public]", although "I'm not talking about stopping people saying 'oh damn' when they hit their thumb with a hammer or something", she says. The paper helpfully includes a list of English and Swedish profanities.

That Ljusdal has been the home of the Bandy World Cup, bandy being a cross between football and field hockey played on frozen football pitches, and is the geographical centre of Sweden might not be wholly unconnected to all of this cursing.
