Can´t see whats wrong with my code

Seems like the code challenge won´t approve my code below. Dont really understand why.

It says that its not a interpolated string, which it is if I have understood the past videos correctly.

strings.swift
// Enter your code below
let name = "Jonas Moltumyr"
let greeting = "Hi there, " + "\(name)"

When you interpolate you don't need to use the '+' operator:

let name: String = "Steve" let greeting: String = "Hi there, (name)"

you only use that for concatenation

let finalGreeting: String = greeting + ". How are you?"
