I’m not normally prone to panic, but this was no normal medical crisis for me. My wife’s uncle, his television and his living room all reside in Sweden, in a town called Eskilstuna, population 67,359, according to 2015 figures. I was there on vacation with my family.
I was about to come face-to-face with Sweden’s vaunted health care system. To my surprise, it was not a pleasant experience.
