    Hej alla!

    Could you please tell me what is the difference between the following words: 'lycklig', 'glad' and 'nöjd' ?

    It's mostly a difference in degree/intensity. "lycklig" is stronger than "glad" which is stronger than "nöjd".

    lycklig = happy, blissful
    glad = joyful, in a good mood
    nöjd = content, satisfied
