Sweden is among the least corrupt countries in the world, according to Wednesday's DN. The Transparency International research group released its annual report into the global state of corruption, and found Finland to be the straightest nation in the world.
The best rating a nation can get on the "Corruption Perception Index" (CPI) was 10. Finland was awarded a whiter-than-white 9.7, just pipping the southern hemisphere good guys, New Zealand, which received 9.6.
Sweden has nothing to be ashamed of either, with 9.2. But if you're going to Haiti or Bangladesh pack a few brown envelopes - they tied for last place with a dodgy 1.5.
