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.
Having worked for Scandinavian companies over the last quarter century, I hear what you're saying. The Norwegians are by far the most laid back, the Danes the most aggressive. The Swedes seem to fall somewhere in the middle.
