Swedish Family

When I was in Vietnam last summer at a beach resort in Mui Ne I happened to meet 2 Swedish men who proceeded to tell me about Sweden and what they had heard referred to as a “swedish family”. They had ran into some Germans who told them that when somebody has a really disfunctional and/or unconventional family they call it a Swedish family yet the actual Swedish guys had no idea what they were talking about, neither did I. I however have come to love the term and what I now refer to as our Swedish family.
