just gave it a quick look, pretty nice. Maybe you can set the menu to just be text instead of text in a white box? Doesn't matter with the smaller images but the ones that fill the screen all those white boxes are a bit in the way. And maybe add a faded image behind your initial logo in the middle, my first thought was "where are the photos" until the slide show changed.
Don't have much time to poke around more right now, but I like the big images. Maybe you can make the mouse/left/right arrow thingy a bit smaller too, or make it more neutral grey instead of black?
Like your work!

It loads quickly, and is easily navigated. Also ,the fonts, I like them too, clean and simple. It's an enjoyable site to visit.

Very nice. There are a couple of typos on the about page where 'its' is rendered as 'itås'.

The facebook link in the bottom right corner does not seem to be working, but the twitter link is working.

Also, there does not seem to be any sound on the website, but there is a little speaker icon in the bottom right corner.

Other than that, I really like the website.

Edit: Two more things. I like the about page on your blog better than what is on your main website. And the contact page is a bit odd the way the form overlaps with the image.

You should redesign it to not use flash. I instantly close flash sites anymore. New sites should be using html5.
