A Swedish show concerning the fates of some dorky Swedish Vikings. The show is mainly about a viking called Lill-Snorre and his friends, including Tyke Mörbult who has a below average IQ, to put it mildly. How will they survive? A small group of friends, in a small village called Midgård.

[first lines of every episode, Nisse Hult is about to face death]
Hello. My name is Nisse Hult. You probably wonder how I ended up here. So do I.

In all the 6 episodes, Nisse Hult is in a new day of age, with new Swedish historical persons, like for example Gustav Vasa, Charles XII and Queen Christine. Nisse Hult, played by Johan Glanz, is always the innocent subject with his Skåne-accent, the one who gets in trouble and trying to solve it, when Johan Rheborg, Cissela Kyle, Per Svensson and Loa Falkman are the bad but funny bastards (all of them do a good acting performance).
A funny parody of Swedish history! I think the writers where inspired by "Black Adder"; funny parodies of the history. The difference is that "Nisse Hults historiska snedsteg" makes parody of Swedish history and "Black Adder" of British. Remarkably in "Nisse Hult"; there's no background audience laughing to make it funnier. It is already funny enough!
Unfortunately, you have to be Swedish, or perhaps Scandinavian, to appreciate the fun in "Nisse Hult", unless if you're not from Sweden and well-read in Swedish history!
My only reason for giving it 9/10 instead of 10/10 is because of the modern phenomenons which I thought shouldn't be in the show. For example the 90's rock band "Brainpool" at Stockholm restaurant "Gyldene freden" in the year of 1792. Or when Nisse is about to write "Nisse Hult was here" (in English, which I don't think anyone in Sweden spoke in the 17 century).
Except from that, brilliant comedy!
