"There should have been a warning sign in the coinage, which is based on fish: the 1-krona piece bears a salmon, the 10-kroner a school of capelin, the 50 kroner coin a crab, the 100 kroner a plaice. Thumbing the coins, you think: these guys know a lot about fish; about banking, maybe not so much."
