However this is our first issue shot in a wintry landscape, full of snow, ice, and a fair few naked guys photographed in warm jumpers and on cosy blankets. But while there are some similarities perhaps in the appearance of the men, overall it shows how much different the countries of the far north are. It meant that we spent more time with these guys than in most issues, drinking coffee, chatting, getting them comfortable with the camera. Not that spending extra time with these guys was a bad thing! Almost every street looks straight off a postcard. However there is a little bit of grit to be found here and there.

An off-duty Swedish police officer successfully arrested a violent fugitive drug dealer while both men were naked in a Stockholm sauna, public broadcaster SVT has reported. The unnamed officer had just sat down when he spotted the wanted man, who had been on the run since receiving a prison sentence for assorted drugs offences and aggravated assault against a public official. Bohman praised the officer for his calm response to what could otherwise have become a particularly heated confrontation, saying the arrest was effected in a thoroughly professional and undramatic manner.
