Dead End

DEAD END = Återvändsgränd (Swe) = “Return alley” DÖTT SLUT sounds very final. Irreversible. You will possibly even die at the end…? ÅTERVÄNDSGRÄND has the emphasis on survival. You can go in, it’s a little bit scary and you don’t know what to expect. But you will most likely come back alive.
