If you were hoping for a Nobel Prize in literature, well... you'll have to wait until next year.

The Swedish Academy, the panel that hands out the prestigious award, announced that no prize will be given this year. Hear why and reactions to the decision from the literary world.

The ruling Social Democrats want to make permanent the temporary laws that were designed to deter refugees from coming to Sweden. But that decision hasn't sat well with everyone.

And how do immigrants get the food they miss from back home? Simple: they make it. Radio Sweden heard from some women from India who are cooking and selling foods that they had trouble getting when they moved here.
