Is that sure, that it is a swedish encyclopedia. I mean, the word: Konversationslexikon is german. I am German, so I wonder that it should be a swedish encyclopedia.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 19:56, December 23, 2011 (UTC)

This is a real book, not just a film prop, so yes, it is Swedish. Both languages are descended from a common root language, so it's not too strange that some words would be similar. -- 1337star (Owl Post) 20:07, December 23, 2011 (UTC)
Wiktionary lists "konversationslexikon" as a Swedish word. Anyway, one of the (few) mentions I saw online of "Bonniers Konversationslexikon" was an article on the Swedish Wikipedia that, according to an online translator I used, is about a twelve-volume Swedish encyclopedia first published in the 1920s. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 20:08, December 23, 2011 (UTC)

That's interesting. I didn't know. I just wondered because Konversationslexikon is - maybe "also" - a german word.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 22:52, December 23, 2011 (UTC)
