Greta is eleven years old and has gone two months without eating. Her heart rate and blood pressure show clear signs of starvation. She has stopped speaking to anyone but her parents and younger sister, Beata.
 
After years of depression, eating disorders, and anxiety attacks, she finally receives a medical diagnosis: Asperger’s syndrome, high-functioning autism, and OCD. She also suffers from selective mutism—which explains why she sometimes can’t speak to anyone outside her closest family. When she wants to tell a climate researcher that she plans a school strike on behalf of the environment, she speaks through her father.
 
The book Scenes from the Heart (“Scener från Hjärtat,” 2018) recounts these medical difficulties and the events that led to Greta Thunberg’s now-famous “school strike for climate,” in which hundreds of thousands of children have refused to attend school to protest about government inaction over climate change. Greta herself strikes every Friday and spent three weeks sitting outside the Swedish Parliament at the beginning of the school year. Written by her family—mother, father, Beata and Greta—the story is told in the voice of Greta’s mother, the opera soprano Malena Ernman, who was a celebrity in Europe long before her daughter’s fame. Although the book is only available in Swedish for the time being, it is already being translated into numerous languages—a development that reflects the global fascination with Thunberg’s campaign.

Best line in a Scandi Noir. Saga is at a bar in a nightclub and goes up to a bloke.

 

Saga: I want to have sex with you.

 

Bloke: Would you like a drink?

 

Saga: I do not want a drink. I want to have sex with you.

The fascination is (leftist) media made.

 

 

I hold suicide before she is 30 probable.

Copenhagen police station hit as Danish capital sees second blast


2 hours ago
 

An explosion has hit a police station in the Danish capital, Copenhagen, the second blast to hit the city this week.

 

The building was damaged but no-one was injured in the incident early on Saturday, which took place just outside the city centre.

 

On Tuesday, there was a powerful explosion outside the national tax agency, in what the authorities say was a deliberate attack.

 

It is unclear if the two incidents are linked.

 

Police say they are looking for a man who was seen fleeing the scene of the police station blast, who was wearing dark clothing and white shoes.

 

"This was not an accident, but a deliberate act," Chief Police Inspector Jorgen Bergen Skov said, adding that while the investigation was still under way, nothing suggested it was terror-related.

 

"These were attacks against buildings, not people," he said. "But it is too early to say anything about the motive."

 

One person was slightly injured in the explosion at the tax agency earlier in the week.

 

The blast, which happened late on Tuesday, smashed windows and damaged the front of the building.

Per the photo of the suspect, they're looking for Bigfoot. Or this being Scandinavia, probably a small troll.

Dark clothing and white shoes? Attack of the Chavs?
