What don't you like?


Explanation:
"Tycka om" has two meanings in Swedish, depending on what word is stressed.

"TYCKA om" is generally used in questions asking an opinion and translates as "What do you think about...?"

"Tycka OM" means "to like". Given that there is no specific object in this sentence, and the negative particle "inte" instead, I'm guessing the latter interpretation is correct.

What's the context of the sentence?
