Given that the Swedish conception of entertainment includes either drinking your brains out during the week-end (if you are low-brow) or attending an Ingmar Bergman production of Eugene O’Neill at Dramaten (if you are high-brow), Povel Ramel (1922-2007) was a bit of an oddity.

The Killing Gang, Filip and Fredrik, Måns and Anders and Fredrik Lindström (wait, aren’t there any funny female Swedes?) have some hard work ahead of them.
