Brothers in årms?
It was obvious yesterday, but the Swedish king has also been seen as a clue in question 2. ETT TU, BRUTE (20 June), but this clue have no real connection to either of the football clubs mentioned. On the other hand, the "number combination" connected to the two of them would correspond to the number 8.

Brothers in arms?
The Swedish king has recently stated to the Swedish newspaper Kalmarposten (and spread through TT, DN, SvD, and AB) that he supports the Stockholm club Djurgårdens IF rather than AIK where he is elected honory member. Many may be surprised by this "scoop", but the connection between the monarch and the football club has existed for long - just take a look at the partially new clue to question 3. HAND IN HAND, LINE BY LINE in Klurendrejeriet® mini above!

The lastest addition to Klurbloggen, the automated survey system Blogger has set up, seems to be somewhat faulty when going back to previously viewed pages. We hope that this will be fixed in the near future (by Blogger staff), but until then we hope it does not cause too much grievance. The easiest way to navigate is to click more than once on backwards links or by using the archive menu on the bottom right-hand side of the blog.

It was not that long ago we announced that the 3ooth unique visitor had come to Klurbloggen since the beginning of Klurendrejeriet® mini. Now, more than one hundred more has followed reaching a total past 400! We extend our gratitude to both Ultunesaren and MeMaC for the help!
Here is the English translation of a comment originally posted here.
JoHo sa: "Oh, I guess congratulations is in order! Celebrate? How about me singing 'Lang zal hij leven' here at home? Or perhaps we can get som new exciting PICTURE (that has to do with the mini-Klur) to look at?"

Kollosalt juverligt sammanträffande?
An udderly strange cowincident?
To celebrate the 200th post on Klurbloggen (as mentioned earlier), the above picture is an extra picture clue to question 1. EXPRESSION FOR IMPRESSIONS in Klurendrejeriet® mini.
The winner of Klurendrejeriet® 2007, Johanna Dernfalk, suggested that one can celebrate 200 posts with a new picture to Klurendrejeriet® mini and that sounds like a great idea! (Who are we to argue with the most recent winner?) This means that the promised vote is pushed forward and is replaced with a survey run in the right-hand margin until the end of next week. The new picture will be published later today.

If anyone thought that the contact with the German intenet forum MeMaC was broken, think again! Today the link was re-established and this will likely mean that the number of German-speaking participants will increase. Klurbloggen would like to thank MeMaC once again and we hope the cooperation will be mutually beneficial!
This is the 200th post on Klurbloggen and this ought to be celebrated somehow! Is there perhaps a reader of Klurbloggen who has a specific suggestion on how this celebration should be carried? If so, feel free to reply to this post.

De som följt med sedan tävlingen startade har säkert sett båda versionerna av gåtan, men den tål att upprepas - denna gång sida vid sida (se nedan). Båda versionerna "säger" exakt samma sak, men den senare (övre) versionen uppfattas säkerligen som enklare för förstagångsdeltagare i Klurendrejeriet®. Namnet är känt sedan en lång tid tillbaka både i Sverige och utomlands - hur känt återstår dock att kvantifiera.
Ett känt namn?
A well-known name?
As promised, above is an extra clue for question 1. EXPRESSIONS FOR IMPRESSIONS as a result from the recently finished vote on the matter:
Those that have followed the contest since the beginning probably have seen both versions of the riddle, but it is certainly useful to repeat it - this time side by side (see above). Both versions "say" the same thing, but the latter (upper) version is probably experienced as the easier one for first-time participants in Klurendrejeriet®. The name is well-known for quite some time in both Sweden and abroad, though how well-known is still to be determined.

Have you noticed that there is some new buzz to the answer to a question in Klurendrejeriet® 2007? It the answer to question 3 that soon will travel the globe again ...
Monday, 23 July 2007
Once again, a new country has been added to the greater Klurendrejeriet® family: Brazil! We hope they find it having the same ordem e progresso as their nation's motto.
Sunday, 22 July 2007
We have a winner!
In spite of the low turn-out (see above), there is no doubt which question the readers of Klurbloggen would like to get an extra clue for: the winner is question 1. EXPRESSIONS FOR IMPRESSIONS, and was the only alternative that got any votes at all! Let us hope for more voters at the next clue session (planned to start this Friday)
Saturday, 21 July 2007
Have you read the latest news on the red-and-white logotype from Klurendrejeriet® 2007? If not, then read and solve question 9 and see if you can find the article published on Commercial Alert. Klurbloggen will supply the link in about a week ...
Friday, 20 July 2007
In response to the latest poll that ended today (Friday), the next clue will be given for question 1. The clue will be made public within the next couple of days.
Thursday, 19 July 2007
During the past few days, Klurbloggen has been visited by an internet user from yet another country (France), and also added more unique visitors from the UK, Australia, Germany, the US, and (of course) Sweden. The mental preparations for Klurendrejeriet® 2008 seem to have started all around the globe!

Klurbloggen has has previously reported that Klurendrejeriet® 2008 is under construction. Last year's contest offered prizes with a total worth of over 2,000 euro and everything seems to point in that direction for this year as well. We will keep you informed to this very interesting detail.

All quiet on the western front - at least the western front of Klurendrejeriet®! There is still time to vote in the ongoing clue election. Have you voted?
Saturday, 14 July 2007
Were you not able to solve any question yesterday? That is okay, since Klurendrejeriet® hardly can be said to be a contest where you can decide when to solve one! Whatever you do, do not blame it on the fact that it happened to be Friday 13! Focus on real facts instead of superstition, since the contest without any doubt is both scientifically sound and based on reality.
Friday, 13 July 2007
Since the posts on Klurbloggen are moving downwards with an alarming rate, the voting procedures have moved to the right-hand margin permanently (a new feature on Blogger). This means that your time to affect which question that will get the next extra clue is prolonged with yet another week. Make sure you vote for the question you think is hardest now!
Today, three new countries were added to the ever-expanding list of Klurbloggen visitors: India, Japan and Hungary! We hope that the English translation was satisfactory!

1. UTTRYCK FÖR INTRYCK "förkommer" mer än en gång per år.
2. ETT TU, BRUTE "förekommer" en gång per år.
3. HANDUPPSTRECKNING "förekommer" inte ens varje år.
It often happens that one feels that there is no real progress in solving the questions in Klurendrejeriet®. It is probably the most common feeling, since there are many wrong answers but (often) only one correct one! To let some steam out in this more laid back version of the contest, we offer one extra clue to each of the questions - at no extra charge!
1. EXPRESSION FOR IMPRESSION "occurs" more than once per year.
2. ETT TU, BRUTE "occurs" once per year.
3. HAND IN HAND, LINE BY LINE does not "occur" even once a year.

Today, the 3ooth visitor passed through the non-existing turnstile at the entrance of Klurbloggen (since the activation of the counter on May 20). This means that there on average has been six unique visitors per day of which half are returning ones. The average number of visitors has been fairly stable since the start of the contest, but still attracts completely new ones. You returnees better be careful since the big contest (Klurendrejeriet® 2008) is drawing closer for each day!
Monday, 9 July 2007
The new Swedish cities from which new users accessed Klurbloggen were Gothenburg, Kalmar, Malmö and Växjö to name a few. Are the Swedes determined to keep all the Klurendrejeriet mini prizes in Sweden or will the user from New York will change all that? The preparations for this week's free clue continues, but you should not forget to vote for an extra hint to the question you are struggling most with! Vote here!
Sunday, 8 July 2007
Users from many new Swedish cities were registered as visitors on Klurbloggen this weekend. Has the rumour of the contest spread or is it simply the current participants that require information from far away friends and relatvies? Expect a full report tomorrow!
Saturday, 7 July 2007
Since the voting procedure that started for a little more than two weeks ago have been advancing fairly slowly, an additional extra clue will be given early next week. Stay tuned to find out the latest news - right here - on Klurbloggen!

How should one describe the typical visitor on Klurbloggen? Well, if we read the web statistics, most users visit the site using Internet Explorer (80 %), while the rest surf on Mozilla Firefox (15 %) or some other type of browser. Most visitors stay for more than five minutes, but that may not be too strange, given the cryptic texts written here. Finally, the person is most likely to sit in Sweden or at least Europe, though there have been a few visits from both the US and Thailand! During the month of June, Klurbloggen had 144 unique visits, of which approximately two thirds had visited the site on a previous occasion, an increase by 61 users from the previous month.

Monday, 2 July 2007
One question arose after yesterday's recap, namely if it included all clues. It was, however, clearly stated in the recap text that only the open ones were gathered there. There may be more information on the blog, but it is up to each individual solver to find it.
