  1. Does anyone know why the Gypsies in Thinner spoke swedish? As a scandinavian it's hard not to miss it. Gypsises dont speak swedish... Did King just randomly choose words from a random dictionary? And how did the publishers allow it?

    He admits to being lazy in his research (none) when he did that. It's made him be more conscientious for other books--although there are still many things that he gets called out for not getting right, he tries his best to get the right translations when he uses a language other than English. :)

    By me, for example, for the horrid Italian spoken by Balazar in the Dark Tower :p
