I have a tradition in being hardest and most critical towards my own countrymen, whether it's about music, literature, cinema, food, beer, whatever. So, the Finns have to REALLY impress me if I should begin to like them. It's sort of a counter-reaction to the attitude that I see a lot here in my country. I want it to be so that if I like a thing that originates from my own country, I have exceptionally good reasons for liking it that I can articulate immediately.

But, when the Finns DO impress me, then I'm immensely proud of them. So I guess that there's a small nationalist in me, under the counter-nationalist shell!
