Hasse Z was the pen name of the Swedish humorist Hans Harald Zetterström (1877-1946). Hasse Z was among the most influential figures in Swedish humor in the first half of the 20th century. He began as a writer of short, humorous sketches, and later founded or edited some of the leading Swedish humor periodicals of the day. The stories are simple pieces, written to amuse readers of their time, and they have the power to amuse still. Enjoy!
