Most of Scandinavia exists for me like the children’s stories I read when I grew up. It’s obviously Pippi Longstocking and the Moomins from Finland and Thorbjörn Egners, you know Karius and Baktus.

Well, at the moment I’m the Moomin-mother. Touring and doing this project I’m doing is very much like being like her. Being very understanding and always having a bag full of things. If someone breaks her favorite vas she just goes "Oh, I didn’t like it anyway".

Especially while touring, I’m very much like the Moomin-mother. But I think I used to be more of a Pippi Longstocking. I still am but I used to be more, especially as a teenager.
