First I learned from Bilbo Prattle that the instrument on the 50 krones money of Sweden is a Swedish Key violin. Now I learned from Corwin Slack that it is also called "nyckelharpa" ( here more about the nyckelharpa or Swedish Key violin on Wikipedia) and gives Bach on Youtube on this instrument:
"I wonder if it's any easier to learn than traditional violin." Yes Bernardette, you don't have intonation problems with your left hand, because the (piano-)mechanic pulls down the strings to the fingerboard.
