She stood next to Jimmie Åkesson when he made the statement that created chaos in Sweden, chose the luxury of Oman and one of the electorate seems to be winners in Sweden.
Besides being a key figure in the Swedish elections, party leader of the Christian Democrats, Ebba Busch Thor (31) is also half Norwegian.
Her grandfather is the man who started Gresvig sport – now G-sport. While her grandfather was a Norwegian champion in rowing.
In the 1980s her father drove to Uppsala to attend a Bible school. There he met the lawyer Helena Allert, who later brought the children Ebba and Gustav.
Busch Thor still has contact with his Norwegian roots. She has dual nationality, speaks fluent Norwegian and celebrates 17 May in Bunad.
"My Norwegian heritage is an important part of who I am, I am proud of my Norwegian ideas," she said until the day of 2015.
While polling stations were closed on Sunday evening, TV4 and SVT announced their measurements. It led to wild cheerfulness at the election guard of the Christian Democrats.
"It feels very good, as many of us have written off," says press secretary Acko Ankarberg Johansson to Aftonbladet.
In the previous elections the KD ended with a profit of 4.6 percent. When two-thirds of the votes have been cast, the party is expected to achieve an attendance of 6.4 per cent. This means an increase of 1.8 percentage points.

The measurement of TV4 also gives personal success to the party leader. A clear majority of respondents in TV4's polling day survey is of the opinion that Ebba Busch Thor did the best in the election campaign.
"Set on fire"
When the countdown came to an end, Busch Thor came on stage during the party's election week:
"We really brought this KD rebel to life.
"Sweden needs a new government We do not need four years with scandals where no one takes responsibility Sweden needs an alliance government.
She goes on to say that the Alliance is planning a meeting tonight. Then she went to the scene of Alicia Keys song "Girl On Fire" and deafening applause.
Could live the luxury of life
As a 28-year-old, Busch Thor became both party leader and mother for the first time. At the same time, husband and former football player Niklas Busch Thor received an offer from a club in Oman.
– That's right. I was in a situation where I considered leaving the policy and maybe working in the business for a while. It was a good idea to be a resident mother in Oman, if Niklas were to play there, she told the Expresss.
With such an agreement, the couple Busch Thor could have lived the luxury of the Arab country, but instead chose to stay.
"Then came the offer to lead the Christian Democrats, and I chose to thank that, I do not regret it for a second," she says.
Unusual election promise
Everything indicates that Busch Thor and the Christian Democrats will be decisive if Moderator Ulf Kristersson (54) takes control of Sweden, or that Stefan Löfven (61) is in charge.
If Busch Thor wishes, she has promised to wash herself naked in the fountain on the Sergel square in the center of Stockholm. She promised a humorous tone in the Youtube Program Party in April.
Nudity or not, Knut Arild Hareide (KrF) is at least aware of who he is hiding. He voiced Saturday in a Facebook post.
"I know you've been busy for many weeks, Ebba, and your efforts have been phenomenal," the party leader wrote and added that "politicians like you must be".

In the wind
During the election campaign, Busch Thor and the Christian Democrats turned away from the headwind:
After four years under the limit of restriction, almost every measure, the party led by half-Norwegian Ebba Busch Thor is more than five percent on the measurements. The barrier limit in Sweden is four percent, as in Norway.
In this way she can determine whether the Alliance with the moderates, liberals, center party and Christian Democrats enters the government. On the contrary, the current government with the Social Democrats and the green party stands for the green, who can take the left party in a red-green block.
At the time of the election, Löfven claimed that the Alliance would reduce taxes by 100 billion Swedish krona. The public prosecutor does not vote because the Alliance's four parties disagree about fiscal policy, according to Aftonbladet.
Busch Thor responded with doubts about Löfven's ability to count before the debate drew the refugee crisis in 2015. At that time, the KD leader proposed to introduce a temporary residence permit instead of permanently. The answer was no, before it was submitted to parliament six months later.
"Sweden was unemployed," she said during the debate.
Head of an SD chat
On several occasions, the party leader was drafted as the winner of the debate. Most recently in the party leadership debate on Friday, which was overshadowed by the war between the leader of the Swedish Democrats Jimmie Åkesson and the Swedish state broadcaster SVT.
During the election campaign this year, the Swedish Democrats had their own ability to get in the spotlight of the media. Much because of their controversial critical statements from the past and immigration.
Busch Thor looks tired. When asked by the Swedish TT if there is something that should have been discussed less during the election campaign, it is crystal clear:
– Democrats of Sweden. I do not think that an election match wins that focuses on another party. Giving a voice to Jimmie Åkesson is one of the most insecure things to do in this election.
"Because he can not choose between Stefan Löfven and Ulf Kristersson, but I can." A vote for the Christian Democrats is a voice that Kristersson becomes prime minister, she says.
