This week Malin Nyberg sits too close to the telly and gets sucked into the wacky world of commercial dance artist Jonas Altberg, aka Basshunter. Good question, many Swedes wondered the same thing in 2006 when an unknown dance artist was suddenly being played by Swedish DJs all across the country.

It seems he really loved the web in general and decided to write songs about the cyber world. He become very successful in Britain, topping the UK charts for five weeks. In 2007, DJ Mental Theo used the "Boten Anna" instrumental to create a bootleg English-language version for his DJ sets in Magaluf, Mallorca.It was this song that eventually became released as a single.Bill grabbed her firm ass cheek, but the maid tossed his hand away, so he had to get up and teach this slut how to treat male visitors of the hotel.
