A simple sign


As shown in april in this blog when I showed you our Raoul Wallenberg monument Swedes are generally extremly poor when it comes to saluting someone great.
Olof Palme, our murdered primeminister, is no different with this sign lying on the pavement showing the place where he got murdered back in 1986.
In the background you can see the stairs that the killer ran up and the entrance to the Brunkebergs tunnel which I´ve showed you the past week.

Personally I feel it is a crying shame that this is the only "monument" after Palme. Even if you did´nt share his political views he did quite a lot of work for the political scene in the world. But I guess that´s the bad thing with us swedes. We´re not supposed to get tributes. And if we do get it it´s in the form of a simple sign that dogs shit and people walk on.

interesting post - this is like a forensic/cultural/political feast of information - Having met a bunch of swedes in the past two years - with a couple of them staying at my house - one for two months, the culture is a little different from ours, but they were always very courteous. One swede was in the summer olympics for kayaking.

That is really sad, one thing we are very good in the US is building monuments, maybe there are TOO many in my city! (Indianapolis)

By the way I love your blog as I have ALWAYS wanted to go to Sweden! Maybe someday.
