Maybe Scandinavians are cooler, sexier, more stylish than the rest of us, what with their higher standard of living, breathtaking landscapes, and moody TV dramas involving murders and sweaters. But that doesn't alter the fact that some of the daily sayings in those chic northern countries are positively bizarre.

Here you'll find 50 such idioms you never knew you needed in your life, illuminated with hilarious illustrations.
