Nebraska in the 1880's is bleak, lonely, and far from what the Wild West is purported to be. But for a naive Swedish immigrant, the frontier parlor of the blue hotel represent the quintessential western fantasy. No one can convince the Swede that his dime-store notions about the West are foolish. He sees murderous intentions all around him and in his terror he turns everybody against him; the story inevitably ends in tragedy. However, who is responsible? The negative Swede? Or the cliquish hotel guests?
