Compared to surstromming and other "aromatics" such as lutefisk and hakari (an Icelandic 'delicacy' of rotten shark meat), pickled herring and canned mackerel come off smelling like a dozen long-stemmed roses.
Opening a can of surströmming is like detonating a nuclear bomb of the most pungent rotting fish on the planet. If done indoors, there will be casualties.
