Do any people have dark brown hair in Scandinavia?

Everyone I know from Sweden/Denmark has either blond or light brown hair. I also know that Scandinavians have a reputation for having very light complections. But, are there any dark haired people in the area? Very little?

    There are lots of dark haired (and dark skinned) people in Sweden, and in the rest of Scandinavia too, I'm sure. There is probably a higher percentage of blonde and light-skinned people in Scandinavia than in most other countries, but that doesn't mean that dark-haired or brown-haired people are rare. Especially not nowadays, when many Swedes come from other parts of the world, or have parents or grandparents that immigrated to Sweden.

    Yes, there are many darkhaired people in the Scandinavian countries - but proportionately fewer than in most places. Even the darkhaired people here often tend to have fair skin and blue/green/gray eyes though. Nowadays, with people immigrating here from all over the world, the picture is naturally changing. But I'm assuming you meant native Scandinavians :-)

    I've seen Scandinavians with dark brown hair, especially in the Norwegian national soccer team.
