Strange Things, 2 Feb. — or are they ordinary?

From a book I’m reading now, Henning Mankell’s Before the Frost (2004):

“‘I’ve never seen anything like this landscape before,’ Lindman said. ‘Not in the west, not up in Härjedalen. Here Sweden simply slopes down to the sea and ends. All this mud and fog. It’s very strange. I’m trying to find my feet in a landscape that’s completely alien to me.’

“Linda mumbled that fog was fog, mud was mud. What could possibly be strange about something so ordinary?
