As Mr Monkey approached the Schougensbron, he was told to look out for hooks underneath it. These were put there during World War Two, when the Swedes were afraid of German invasion. The idea was that it'd be easy to hang explosives under the bridge, to blow it up and stop invaders getting into the centre of town. Now the hooks are used to hold skater's jackets when the canals freeze over.
