About This Quiz

Many Americans today are fascinated by the Nordic countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland. Perhaps it's because the Vikings once made their home there, or maybe it's because of our national obsession with IKEA. Either way, all things Nordic are trending in the U.S. The Swedish horror film "Midsommar" was a recent box office hit, while Danish modern furniture has never been more popular. The Danish/Norwegian concept of "hygge," or coziness, has been featured on dozens of home and garden websites, while Netflix users across the globe are streaming Nordic noir shows like "The Bridge."
