Swedish term or phrase: ni ar fager
I don't know, a friend said it to me.
Andrew Smith
You are handsome
Explanation:
I guess my previous answer under your duplicate question "disappeared into some black hole". :-)

I would use handsome if said to a male person, and beautiful or fair if said to a female.

In normal speech, though, you would use "du" rather than "ni" for the word "you".
