He's a Swedish-speaking Finn. Very different breed.
I used to deal with engineers from a, well, let's say, a Finnish technology company you probably heard of. Lots of guys who were absolutely silent all the time, you never knew what they were thinking. One very loud guy who would tell me exactly what was wrong with what I was proposing. Like Linus, he was a Swedish speaking Finn. Those guys are far more outspoken than the Finnish-speaking Finns. There are only around 300,000 of them.
