But then he admits that the backlog was larger than expected.

– They arrived slightly early, but it was nothing that bothered.

He could even see it as a boost for the performance.

– Then something happened. The unpredictable is alluring.

Made small changes

Loa Falkman shouldered this year the prestigious task from Jan Malmsjö , who read the poem on the Solliden stage since 2001.

– We made a long list. Then we thought Loa Falkman would do it this year. It will be good, says Brattmyr.

“bolt from the blue”

Loa Falkman remember the conversation well. Very well.

– I stood exactly where, says Loa and pointing towards a floor space in his studio.

– It was like a bolt from the blue. I had no idea that Janne (Jan Malmsjö), would stop. Of course I was startled, while of course I was extremely proud. It is solemn and a great honor. I said yes immediately, although in his head felt like it took several hours before I said yes.

Then he got the text transmission. He is thoroughly prepared when he gets up in the evening at Skansen scene.

– It’s just like reading the script, basically. Mala text. Grind, grind, grind. Learn by heart. It is their pork that comes to get it to her. Then I work very subconsciously. Clean but to-wise it does not take that long to learn. Then it must be mine. It’s my, my text. And my subtitles. What I think of when I say “world peace” or “the horrific violence of power”.

It is required for this job, that you are on your toes, says Loa.

– A föreställningsdag is bothersome. It starts when I open my eyes and know that I will perform something in the evening. I am not talking so much, go into my bubble. I am very focused on what I should do. It is important. I have to go for it 100 percent.

Shortly before midnight tonight stands Loa Falkman at Skansen. And now he says that he made a number of changes in the “Ring Out, Wild Bells”.

“No borders”

In order to stay healthy and spirited bicycles Loa much.

– About an hour every day. That’s the goal, he says.

– The body feels great. It’s because I’m thinking about. Also, I am hard hold of Rosy, because she is a dancer. I do not see myself as 67 and senior people. I see no such limits. All the while you are healthy, have the desire and people want to hear and see a funny. I can not think of anything more boring than retire. It is about respect for life. Since breaking out I’m not in spontaneous applause when I see myself in the mirror. I look like a mix between Göran Greider and August Strindberg .

“A very good 2014″

Loa has had a good 2014.

– Job-wise, it has been stimulating and varied. Then we have, and there is Rosy very well, were vacant. “Now we have time off so many weeks’. One way to recharge the batteries. It has been a very good 2014. I have health, we take care of us, he says.

Marie-Louise Ekman’s farewell – Göteborgs-Posten

The farewell party is over at the Royal Dramatic Theatre. Retiring the theater Marie-Louise Ekman leave the theater with a strong economy and positive audience to his successor. Still worried she Dramatens future.

There were treated to hot dogs marble foyer. A congenial farewell menu for a theater manager who clearly stated that she wanted to blur the Royal Dramatic theater snob stamp.

The thresholds must be removed was the message when Marie-Louise Ekman took office in 2009. In the corridor leading to the boss room has top manager with black marker pen directly on the wall pedagogical spelling out the old men and old women are depicted in portraits.

It’s just days away from the six-year mandate, but Marie-Louise Ekman allows no sentimentality. She works here and now, prefer to talk about the future than looking backwards. Right now Dramatens economy “very good”, but the next few years worrying her.

– If we do not receive financial grossing gallops it away at a tremendous rate, she said.

The theater sits, like many other state institutions, in a leghold trap, she says. Dramatic Theatre’s mission is stipulated in minute detail, but the annual financial enumeration does not correspond to wage movement’s outcome.

– We have a wage movement that might end up at 2.4 per cent and we get 0.4 percent in the enumeration and Then we have a rent increase it. The authorities’ view of a government institution is that each year the slim and pull down.

All managers employed today – whether it be in business or a state institution – get that mission, she says . Pull down on staff or workspaces, but still improve the results. The perception of the economy and labor is only destructive, believes Marie-Louise Ekman.

But how openly critical, you have been able to be as head of a government institution?

– You can be the critical one wants, I believe. But in each context is permitted to choose their battles and choose when one is constructive and when is destructive. I think we have a good financial allocation here. What I am against is what I call a slow drain. It’s a strange National economic planning and vision to do so.

It is nearly time to roll out the stuffed llama who graced Marie-Louise Ekman’s manager s and move into Eirik Stubøs furniture. But llama get a new home with Young Dramatic Theater, one of the outgoing boss’s baby. The business has for a number of years on the stand-alone scene generator had to move back into the heart of the theater.

Scenes feel good to spin around a bit, she says. Organizationally omtänk and new additions as hip hop concert Ladies First and spoken word events have highlighted both the audience and the mood among employees. The lonely artist Marie-Louise Ekman became a widely acknowledged popular manager who has received several awards for his leadership, most recently Head Galan big honorary award in April.

But have you managed to wash away snob stamp from the Royal Dramatic Theatre?

– I do not know if I can say that I have succeeded in this or not. Still, many people think they have to look a certain way or have a certain formation to go here. Not everybody knows that they automatically have access to Royal Dramatic Theater, they think happy that other people are finer than themselves.

And that is unfortunate.

Gabriel Bystrom: What lingers – Göteborgs-Posten

There are a few things that will linger from the year that is about to expire. Events, changes that are meaningful and will play the role too long after other memories of 2014 has begun to fade.

We will not be able to ignore the nationalist wave that is sweeping across Europe and whose consequences we can not yet foresee. There was a wave that grew louder and more distinct in years, not least here at home with the Sweden Democrats who got an unexpectedly strong voter support and used his influence to trap a government. We saw a number of commentators and politicians who gradually began to normalization of a party with roots in Nazism, a party whose leading representatives openly argued for ethnic profiling and questioned freedom of the press. Instead of discussing it, we got a strange debate about labeling. The problem is that politics is there viewable, the past can not be ignored. The responsibility of those who, by laxity or ignorance, relativize a party that wants to start recording original nationality because “culture and values ​​does not disappear just because someone acquired citizenship” is great.

In Europe, the nationalist wave extensive challenges. The Hungarian example frightening. Still, the EU is almost paralyzed before the transformation of Hungary Prime Minister Viktor Orbán hold on to stage without much protest. The unwillingness and inability of the conservative and Christian Democratic party group in the EU – the EPP – to put pressure on the ruling Fidesz is a disgrace. Here is a great deal for moderate and Christian Democrat MPs to answer. In Russia, Vladimir Putin, his transformation of the country. The former KGB agent is celebrated openly of several nationalist groups on the extreme right wing. With the annexation of the Crimea, Putin has shown that Europe’s borders are not static.

In the cultural field has some strange suggestions halted at the last moment. First it was the Mediterranean Institutions like the S-led government cut at an ALL-NIGHT NEGOTIATIONS no one knew what had happened. Then there was some not fully thought through alliance members on the lookout for fifteen million withdrew support to the country’s cultural journals with marginally convincing argument. In both these cases, the politicians got back because the external pressure becomes too hard. It is of course excellent, while it is clear that the cultural is not an area that is wasted much political love on. It should chug on, preferably without serious disruptions. On the wish list for the upcoming budget negotiations: an increased concern for detail and fewer proposal without impact assessments.

About the new Minister of Culture Alice Bah Kuhnkes political ambitions We do not know very much, it is still right airy when their own policies will be discussed. To Bah Kuhnke identifies media pluralism as essential to democracy oxygenation, however, is an important signal. It is possible to discern an ambition to actually see what the state can do to facilitate commercial media to continue to pursue quality journalism in a time of transition and increasing competition from new entrants. Good, important and, as I understand it, an earnest desire to improve conditions.

The media’s transformation is of course one of the things the past year also will be associated with the side of the nationalist wave. Or rather the consequences of media transformation entails. The rate of conversion has surprised many. Several journalists have lost their jobs, opportunities to engage in quality journalism has fallen. The bright spot that may be present is that the debate has now left the media world and engage much more than before. The great values ​​at stake is increasingly a general insight.

On the wish list for the upcoming year is of course that the City Theatre’s new CEO Bjorn Sandmark manage to find an equally skilled and innovative thinking artistic director of the theater as Anna Takanen been. It will also be interesting to see what the city’s new Cultural Director Anna Rosengren will be able to accomplish in his new job. Rosengren will assume in March and is surrounded by a solid reputation. Another important point is of course that the questions which existed at the People’s Theatre is able to be straightened out. There is some evidence to suggest that the worst of the crisis over.


Loa Falkman: “I wake up and rattles off at night” – Aftonbladet

He is one of our most seasoned performers.

But the mission to read the poem that begins with the words “ring, watch, ring” at Skansen may even Loa Falkman to become nervous.

– I can wake up in the middle of the night and start rattling off it, he said.

Interviews, photo shoots, and even more interviews.

These are busy days for the actor and singer Loa Falkman , 67. Everybody wants a piece of the man who should shoulder perhaps our strongest New Year’s tradition.

– Somebody said “Now it’s you and the King”. Well it was a bit exaggerated, but in a way it is a fact. He has his Christmas speech and now I have my speech on New Year’s Eve, he said.

“Make it Mine”

Almost exactly a year ago read Jan Malmsjö “New Year’s Bells” for the last time.

Soon it’s time for Loa Falkman to make New Year’s debut. And he has worked intensively with the text.

– I make it mine. It is an approach so that we can become one with each other. I take in my life experience, my associations and my values ​​to make the text of the mine, he said.

“Always nervous”

– I have lived with this ever since I got the question . I can wake up in the middle of the night and rattling poem.

Are you nervous?

– Absolutely, I’m always nervous when I shall stand. There is a tension that try to exploit its capabilities to the fullest.

He continues:

– It does not matter that I have been in business for 40 years. But I do not see the nervousness as something negative. It is essential to be on your toes for it to be fine.

According Loa Falkman came the question of succeeding Jan Malmsjö as a surprise.

– I was very surprised and flattered . People around has for many years said that “you should not take and read this text?”. It’s lovely, but I have not thought that it would actually happen.

Positive continuation

Now hope 67-year-old on a cloudless New Year’s night.

– Last year I sang at the Grand Square in Örebro before 25,000 people. When singing “O Holy Night” and it is a moderate gale and snowstorm and snow blowing down the neck so it is quite heavy. I hope it will be a decent weather. Above all, I hope it becomes a starry night so the audience can see all the fireworks.

Jan Malmsjö read “New Year’s bells” for twelve years. Loa Falkman does not exclude that there may be more readings at Skansen.

– We have not said anything about a possible continuation. But I would not mind it.


Jan Malmsjö: “Loa Falkman’ll pass it with flying colors” – Aftonbladet

He said he remembered reading “New Year’s bells” until he dies.

But now replacing the actor legend Jan Malmsjö ceremony at Skansen against lobster and champagne at home.

– It will be a great relief, he said.

2001, Jan Malmsjö a deep breath and began reading Swedish version of Alfred Tennyson’s poem “New Year’s bells” at Skansen for the first time.

When he was on New Years Eve 2013 got off Solliden stage was the end of an era. Although Malmsjo said he would read the poem until he dies it said in November it clear that there will be no more New Year’s performances from the actor.

“Feels good”

– I can not rip out the Swedish people, he has previously said.

When Nöjesbladet reaches Jan Malmsjö a week before New Year’s Eve, he seems very pleased with his decision.

– It feels nice in that I took the decision to stop all by himself, he says.

Should eat lobster

– It feels like it 100 years ago, my wife and I Marie celebrated the New Year alone with eating lobster and drinking champagne and having candlelight. It should we do now, just as it was in the past.

Do you feel sad?

– I can not go into such emotional things. It has been an honor to read the poem.

But some tips Malmsjo has not given his successor.

– It is not needed. He’s a hell of a good friend and will pass it with flying colors, he says.

Loa Falkman :

– Jan was very positive when I became, and I am glad breeze. But it is not possible to give a few words of wisdom in a situation like this.

“Toy, toy, toy!”

One of the favorites to take over the reading after Malmsjo was Borje Ahlstedt 75th

Although he was commissioned claiming the actor that he is not bitter. And Loa Falkman say they have only been happy exclamations from him.

– He was a mentor to me when I started. And since then we have cemented a great friendship, he said.

Jan Malmsjö have a greeting to his successor before New Year’s debut:

– Tell him “toy, toy, toy!” It we always said when we worked at the Opera House as a lyckohälsning.

more craft than milestone – Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet

“Käääften, Jarnebring!” Five minutes in, it will, exklamationen, utfrustad by Claes Malmberg in a paragraph ham acting worthy of our time Thor Modéen if he ever given beyond farce compartment. Or even that. Is this not precisely the term “farcical” Leif GW Persson please describe Swedish police activities with? And is not the crime genre our most proven genre since the 30s and 40s folk comedy?

We have it actually little as the home of Karl-Bertil Tage Danielsson’s Christmas Carol, though in the present: the presents are distributed, all laughed at the verses of the packages and then leads the Christmas holidays in the common sense of devotion that only a Swedish cop show on TV can vouchsafe people. Exclamations like “I do not care!”, “Now you take the damn quiet!” And “Käääften, Jarnebring” can so doing provide some somewhat religiously in his eyes, as if they were in a nunnery!

Master of ceremonies is again a director Kristian Petri, who together with Danish Kristoffer Nyholm was behind the 2013 GW film version “A pilgrim’s death” an absolutely competent, but the distances congested series of four parts. This time Petri alone and three sections. The rest is largely intact, including the writers Sara Heldt and Johan Widerberg and ensemble, led by Rolf Lassgård, Helena af Sandberg and Per Svensson, with a nice bunch of capable faces in the flank. Literary model is again the trilogy “The welfare state’s case”, from which one now picture set “Another Time, Another Life” and called it “The fourth man.”

It starts in 1989 when Bo Jarnebring and Jeanette Eriksson put on a murder case in Östermalm. The victim is a certain Kjell-Göran Ohlsson, a tranquil Head of Division at Statistics Sweden with few if any friends. Contrary to what Detective Backstrom first predicts it will not be easy at all to find the culprit.

Cut to the present. Lars Martin Johansson, newly appointed SAPO-head, hand pick a group of investigative and intelligence experts. He calls them “my main weapon against those that acute and unexpected may threaten national security.” The very first day shedding a letter in with a hint that maybe you should take another look at the date April 24, 1975, when the Command Holger Meins from Rote Armee Fraktion occupied the West German Embassy in Stockholm. Sure Surely the Germans had help from the Swedish hold? But the Swedes? A few names excavated. A Kjell-Göran Ohlsson, The Quiet murdered bureau chief.

Cut to 1975 and further revelations soon see the light of day. The name Helena Stein stand extraordinary in the eyes of LMJ Group. Today, State Secretary at the Ministry of Defense, probably our next Secretary of Defense. But what she did in 1975? Well, was part of a welcoming host for a bunch of German guests armed with TNT, igniters and a number of pistols and hand grenades in the luggage. The goal: West German Embassy in Stockholm.

Holger Meins drama was a while on the wallpaper to Mikael Marcimain and his new screenplay friend JARGONISTIC to film (they gave themselves instead of “Gentlemen” ). When you see “The fourth man” feels that just Marcimain after milestone “Laser Man” has set a new rib in Swedish crime film, especially when it comes zeitgeist and authentic events. Director Petri with team exhibiting at the point nicely craft.

“The fourth man” is more craft than milestone. Style and tone are known, seen and heard. The actors are hardened, stereotypical characters and events – whether you read the book or not – a little easy to imagine. And the title is just right corny.

Nevertheless, or precisely Therefore, it is both worth seeing and appealing. One reason stands out in particular: you stick pretty perfect within the scope of its ambition. A bit like those comedies of yesteryear. I like it, probably more than Salander, actually.

I also like to see when Lars Martin Johansson doing well. It’s exactly 30 years since he, in Tomas von Bröms’s shape in Bo Widerberg’s “The Man from Majorca” had an unusually miserable Christmas, recently divorced, sad and going out into the cold in search jobs. Here he has cozy Pia at his side, a fat new job and a big bowl of strawberries. It is vouchsafed him well.

It was a little easier to breathe in 2014 – Sydsvenskan

At the beginning of the year brought a small report. It showed, among other things: while hate crimes generally fell 6 percent between 2008 and 2012, increased hate crimes against people of African origin by 24 percent during the same period.

Afro Phobia The report, which was published by the Multicultural Centre, also describes how Afro-Swedes suffer discrimination in the housing market, in education and in the workplace. Swedes born in Africa – even those with Swedish exam – for example, has the worst educational performance of all residents and have to go three times as many job interviews to get a job as a white man.

Beat these statistics down like a Bomb? Hmmm. Or rather, yes and no.

In the traditional media got African-Phobia report is far from the attention it should have been. But it was discussed extensively elsewhere. 2014 was a year when many alternative radical voices were raised, and demanded their place in the public debate.

The room – the separatist site run by young non-white writers rooted in a post-colonial tradition of ideas – showed that there there was a pent-up need for new perspectives.

As belonging to the group Afro-Swedes – ie the 180 000 Swedes who were born in sub-Saharan Africa, or have at least one parent who is it – I feel that the air has felt a little easier to breathe this year. Last spring I saw Osmond Karim and Malin Holmberg Karim’s documentary “Raskortet”. The concept is simple: a series of Afro-Swedes share their experiences of being black in Sweden. Self, I could recognize me too well in a lot, like having one white and one black parent and feel more protected by the white people’s skin.

“Raskortet” became the most widely shared documentary on SVT Play in years, which suggests that it served as a wake-up call for many. In one scene tells Raymond Peroti when he was eleven dropped his wallet where there was a photo of himself – which got hate mail to cave in. Since then he has been forced to have a secret address and phone number. In another telling Tandi Agrell about his mother, the first black physician in Sweden. Once when they drove passed the scene of an accident, and when the mother was about to stop to see if she could help her daughter thought: Please, just drive on. Despite the fact that the mother was a doctor believed her daughter that her help was required – because she was black.

Although there have been no lack of anti-racist commentators on cultural and editorial pages earlier. But in 2014, the non-white writers stepped into the arena and not only wanted to talk a general anti-racist struggle, where the target is often racist parties on the right – but turned his gaze toward anti-racists themselves, and challenged previously given positions.

An example: in 2011 wrote Åsa Linderborg, Aftonbladet’s cultural section, in an article about Ruben Östlund’s film “Play”: “In the space of a nanosecond rolled my involuntary preprogrammed brain up the same confused trailers over the course of history as it always does when I see one colored man: slave ship, Tintin in the Congo, cotton plantation, Rwanda, ANC, Muhammad Ali, family Cosby, I have a dream, negro balls, Malcolm X, children with flies in the face, Obama, AIDS, Idi Amin … “

It is significant that the criticism of the passage – including the room-writer Valerie Kyeyune Backstrom in the Bulletin Board – comes first year. 2011 you could get away with using the dubious notion colored man. 2014 has many replaced it with racialised, a word that describes the social process where non-white people attribute certain characteristics based on their skin color.

During the year, this new movement naturally encountered criticism, not least from a liberal direction . Last summer was worried about Susanna Birgersson, editorial writer for the DN, what happens when rasifieringsdiskursen spreads to “misguided youths in segregated neighborhoods.” The risk, said Birgersson, is that they then get the idea that they “can not get anywhere in this by racist country if they are not performing at least twice as good as a blue-eyed Swedish”.

A classic cheap points: anyone trying to call attention to a problem accused of perpetuating the same, even though the problem description is empirically substantiated. In what other context would be stopped heads in the sand facing the kind of figures presented at the beginning of this article?

The same strange kind of objection came political science professor Bo Rothstein with recently. In Dagens Nyheter debate, he wrote that identity politics, as this movement has come to be called, threatens the Nordic social model. His thesis: trust in society is based on people, regardless of background, gender and sexual orientation, are treated equally by society’s institutions. If someone claims that they are not crashing all together. It is all about how we describe reality, not on how it is constructed.

Identity politics has been accused of being not just whiny, but also alarmist. “The debate about racism it sometimes sounds as if we are in the 1960s, the United States,” wrote Sakine Madon in a chronicle of Expressen’s editorial page. We do of course not. But should we stop discussing unequal pay just because we do not arrange häxbränningar anymore?

The big backlash came when right Åsa Linderborg wrote a long text in which she accused the identity policy to be liberal and “extremindividualistisk” and called for Single struggle. “It is more liberal than left to make representations to a matter of skin color and not structure,” she wrote. As if it were a choice. But it does not matter what you do or do not, there is a structure that ensures that it is more advantageous to be white and less advantageous to be black.

This summer, the author wrote Zach Stafford, growing up in American South, about his all-white half-brother Mitch, who during their childhood “loved black people more than I did.” In adulthood may Stafford a call. Mitch, now trained police have shot dead an unarmed black man. First, he wants it to be an accident, as fatal shootings of black people usually described by the police, but then he is forced to painfully realize: his brother hugged shutter button just because it was a black man. His conclusion is that the brother at the individual level has developed into a murderous thoroughbred racist over the years, without there being a racist culture in the US police.

It is precisely the identity politics is all about: to dare to see the racist structures, to realize that we are all, to use Linder’s words, has an involuntary pre-programmed brain.

The New American research that has been shown that whites tend to see blacks as carriers of magical powers. It is customary to talk about the dehumanization of people, but here it is about a kind of superhumanisering. Black is considered to have a higher pain threshold than whites. Therefore, the lower doses of painkillers in hospital. Therefore, a white police describe an unarmed black teenager as a demon and Hulk Hogan, who refuses to die when he peppers his body full of lead (as in the case of fatal shooting in Ferguson).

It is quite true that black sheep sit next to white on the bus today. But on a mental level, there are still things that have not changed as much as we think. The classic However, the test – where black American children had to choose between a white and a black doll – were first made in the 1940s. 2008 saw it again in Denmark, with both white and black children. The result was the same: a majority of the children preferred the white doll because it was finer, sweeter or simply white.

All of this can we keep talking about next year. Or we can just bury our heads in the sand.


SD submit censure Löfven – Aftonbladet

The Sweden Democrats will submit a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

– A Prime Minister who break their promises to the Swedish people time and time again not deserve to remain in its mail, he says to Aftonbladet.

Stefan Löfven Strikes Back:

– It’s just nonsense.

In the opinion polls have shown that the Sweden Democrats is one of the few parties that would have gone forward at a new election.

After the announcement that the extraordinary election will be announced think SD submit a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

– We have no confidence in a prime minister who constantly breaks his promises to the Swedish people, says deputy party leader Mattias Karlsson told Aftonbladet.

– He has said that he will not reign with a Alliance Financial, and he has said that voters will have their say on the situation. But he breaks promises again and again.

“The majority will decide”

According to Karlsson violates the agreement against democratic principles.

– Democracy is based on the one the majority should decide. Now imposed rules that allow the minority to decide what the majority, he says, and continues:

– If the Alliance parties have not given up their opposition role they should be supporting the motion of censure. Otherwise, SD Sweden’s only opposition party.

Loof and Löfven saws SD

When Aftonbladet hits Stefan Löfven on Saturday afternoon saying he only briefly:

– This is nonsense.

Although the Centre Party Party leader Annie Loof is highly critical of the Sweden Democrats ‘actions.

– This shows that the Sweden Democrats’ role in Swedish politics is set to chaos, she says to Aftonbladet TV.

– A few weeks ago they voted on a budget they do not want, and now they want to distrust explain away the government. Now it is important that we stop talking matters of form and instead start discussing politics.

The Liberal Party leader Jan Björklund is on the same line:

– It is not appropriate for us to support a Censure of yet. But we do not exclude that we will topple the government later in the term.

“13 percent is not enough”

According to Stefan Löfvens press secretary Eric Nises the Sweden Democrats’ vote of no confidence is not likely to lead anywhere.

– It is the SD free to submit a censure. But as far as I can see, it will not have any impact, he says to Aftonbladet.

– SD may have 13 percent, but it is not enough to convict a government.

Johan Ingero, presshef of the Christian Democrat leader Göran Hägglund:

– We consider a vote of no confidence is something that should be used very sparingly. It is something you take when a government or a minister acted very wrong.

He continues:
– This seems to be more a way for SD to show that they do not like our settlement. It is the totally free, but it is not grounds for censure. It’s childish behavior.

Alliance parties’ members are likely to abstain at no confidence vote in parliament.

– We do not support the government, but we do not support nor distrust requirements that only about to get a few columns in newspapers, says Johan Ingero.

“Can perceived as fegar from”

At the press conference this morning said Stefan Löfven to government parties and the Alliance agreed to drop until the Prime Minister who has the strongest support in parliament.

In this way, the Sweden Democrats excluded from influence.

But according to Linus Bylund, SD MP and former press officer of Jimmie Akesson, will it will not work in the long run.

– These special solutions are only temporary. Sooner or later they will be forced to talk to us, he says.

In the eyes of voters, the decision to not call a new election is seen as the government backs down, according to the Linus Bylund.

– The could be understood that the fegar out. But it is not surprising that they do not want to engage in a battle that they know they will lose. Then, they chose to flee instead of fencing, he said.

It got stuck on the mountain – injured and cooled – Expressen

A skier fell ill this Winter in northern Sweden when he was out and went off piste.

Alpine rescuer was forced into a difficult rescue operation.

– Unable to get down to the actual scene of the accident with the scooter, so the mountain rescuers have had to climb down to him, saying Dan Anderson, duty officer of Västerbotten police.

The man has now been taken to hospital – hard cold.

It was at 14 o’clock in the day that the alarm came. A skier had fallen ill in connection with off-piste driving in the area around Kittelfjäll. According to police, the accident occurred in the so-called Norway-turn, an off-piste routes that can be reached after about 30 minutes of climbing.

– He has managed to end up in a very difficult area. Now we have mountain rescuers in place of the injured. He has back pain and may have some pelvic injury. But because of the terrain so calculated it may take at least two hours to get him from the scene, said Dan Anderson, duty officer of Västerbotten Police earlier today.

The skier was reported to be both injured and cooled and mountain rescuers saw that he kept the heat. The man was conscious but had lower back pain and lower back.

How did the accident happen?

– He has fallen out of any ravine or cut. So, I have interpreted the situation in any case.

During the evening managed to rescue personnel bring down the man, they had to pull him down on foot and the skier was transferred to the hotel Kittelfjäll where he was recovering slightly.

The man was excessively cold.

– He was then taken to the hospital, I really do not know if it was Lycksele or Umeå since the case gone over to the infirmary values. Anyway, it is a journey of nearly an hour in both cases, says Dan Andersson

The skier will reportedly not from the resort.

– He lives here at the hotel, but more than that would I do not say, says Kaj Merstrand that drives Hotels Kittelfjäll.
