You're having a laugh aren't you, I nearly choked on my sandwich, "Scandinavian work ethic with an almost OCD level for perfection" I live in Norway, work for a Norwegian compoany, am in daily contact with other Norwegian and Scandinavian companies, I've never come across any which match your description.

The Scandinavian work ethic is very laid back, it owes more to the Australian or Kiwi style than German, my company bought a German company some years back, the cultural clash was extreme.
