Livet i Finnskogarna really is SWEDISH, despite its somewhat strongly connections to "Finnishness". Finnskogen (=Finnwoods /-forest) is the term used for regions in Sweden (and Norway) that were inhabited by the emi-/immigrants from the province Savo (mostly) in Finland back in the 16th and 17th century. Kalle Karlsson (later Carl Jularbo) probably had some of them among his forefathers.
Google with 'forest finns' to learn more about the past and present of this matter.
