Today we learned that Swedish car maker Koenigsegg teamed up with Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Co, Ltd. to purchase Saab from GM. You remember them, right? Onetime automotive titan, now owned by the federal government? Anyway. Seismic shifts in the industrial world are cool and all, but what's being overlooked in all this is that cars aren't even what Sweden does best. Neither is self-assembled MDF furniture, or meatballs (ayo!), or even peace prizes. No, where Sweden really excels is statuesque blonde women who are sexually confident and smoking hot. Need proof? Just peep the latest Worldwide Wednesday installment as we jet to the land of the Midnight Sun...

#9: THE SWEDISH BIKINI TEAM
CLAIM TO FAME: No, not the American models who played Swedes in the Old Milwaukee commercials of the early '90s--the honest-to-goodness Scandinavian sirens who make their mothers proud in criminally cheesy B-movies.

#8: KAJSA BERGQVIST
CLAIM TO FAME:We're not saying the high jumping legend is a dime, we're just saying that contortions like that are being wasted on the Fosbury Flop.

silvstedt
#7: VICTORIA SILVSTEDT
CLAIM TO FAME: After being Playboy's Playmate of the Year in 1997, she springboarded to international stardom in cinematic gems like Boat Trip and BASEketball. Judging from this picture, though, she's better suited to a job in Silicon Valley. ZING!

akerman
#6: MALIN AKERMAN
CLAIM TO FAME: She played Liane in Harold and Kumar go to White Castle, and is one of the few parts of the movie you don't have to be high to appreciate. It still helps, though.

ekland
#5: BRITT EKLAND
CLAIM TO FAME: An oldie, but a goodie. Ekland was the Bond Girl in 1974's The Man with the Golden Gun. We would have cast her in Goldfingerblast, but maybe that's just us.

CLAIM TO FAME: She's a Polish-born Swedish model and a member of the get-drunk-and-cause-a-ruckus-in-the-friendly-skies club (founded by Naomi Campbell!).

nord
#3: NORA NORD
CLAIM TO FAME: The finest (though we have to assume not only) Swedish porn star, best known for her scintillating work in 2007's Swedish Sex Games. Nice title, guys. What would you rename McDonalds, "Place For Burgers"?

dunst
#2: KIRSTEN DUNST
CLAIM TO FAME: She's probably best known as Mary Jane in the Spider-Man trilogy, but consider this: her name anagrams to STUNNED SKIRT. Marinate on that one for a minute.

#1:LETICIA ANN CLINE
CLAIM TO FAME: This Swedish-American hottie is probably best known for being on season 5 of Beauty and the Geek. We'll give you one guess which one she played.
