Sweden announces design of new banknotes

Sweden has announced what the design of the upcoming new banknotes will be. The new notes will be issued in 2015 and 2016 and will show famous Swedish people from the world of culture and politics.

I think the design is great, but who expected otherwise with Greta Garbo on a banknote?
