Really? We've got one of those. I'll have to keep the Systembolaget in mind. Our local systembolaget has been in the news recently (apart from the fact that everything any government sticks it's hands into sucks old chicken bones), because whenever possible people will cross the county line to buy their licker where it's cheaper and where they can do one-stop shopping. As it is, it seems you can buy the actual alcohol, but not the stuff required to make mixed drinks (at the systembolaget stores). This doesn't make any sense, cos you then have to go to a grocery store (usually 144 miles away from the systembolaget store) to get that stuff.
