Monologue “Med kärlek till Patrik” (in Finnish and Swedish) is aimed for Finnish-speaking teenagers to motivate them to study Swedish. The narrator of the show struggles with his complex relationship to Patrik Sjöberg (successful Swedish high jumper from the 1980s). Mr. Sjöberg is the reason for the narrator’s hate towards Swedish language. During the humorous and warm-hearted show the narrator finds a whole new way to understand Swedish language, Finland-Swedes and Sweden not to forget Patrik Sjöberg himself.
