You're close to solving this puzzle, but there's a few tiny things you left out.

1.) you forgot to use the keyword function:

function returnValue(hej){
  return hej;

2.) you didn't define a variable named echo to store the return value of your function call:

var echo = returnValue("Hej med dig");

*Also, you're passing in a string to the returnValue function, so you need to put your argument in quotes.

Hi Micheal,

First, you are not declaring the function keyword. You need to write "function" when declaring one. Plus, you are not closing your function with a semicolon.

Try it like this:

function returnValue(hej){
  return hej;
