Can a Swedish native speaker read Danish novels or newspapers easily?

Hello all! I am curious about the written aspect. Can a Swedish native speaker or advanced learner read Danish texts easily? What's your experience?

I think it's pretty much the same as you trying to read a novel or newspaper in Portuguese.

Hi! Im native Swedish and tried to read some text from the danish newspaper Jyllands Posten. I got most of it but the where a few words I didnt get. I would say I could read a danish newspapper but I would need to concentrate and there would be a few words i wouldn't understand.

Reading Danish usually isn't much of a problem for a Swede (though quite a lot of words can be different) – though listening comprehension, that's a completely different matter.
