Investor AB, a Swedish investment concern which once controlled Saab before the GM acquisition, is allegedly looking into getting back into the automotive market as part of a consortium willing to take Volvo off of Ford's red-ink-stained hands, according to an unsourced article in the UK's Independent. Ford, on the other other hand, keeps jumping up and down yelping that its Scandanavian division isn't for sale. What would happen if the Swedes brought the iconic brand back to Sverige, anyway? Blood sausage, crash safety and lingonberry crumble for all our G's!
