Google Needs a "No" Button

So I'm reading the second Stieg Larsson book and I'm curious because they keep throwing around amounts in "kronors" - so I go to Google and type in "400,000 kronors = ? dollars" because I want to know what we're talking about here.

So Google says "Showing you '400,000 kroner = ? dollars' with a link to force it back to kronors. So I click on that and immediately it says "400 000 Swedish kronor = 52 034.4 U.S. dollars" and then says "Did you mean: 400,000 kroner = ? dollars"


And Google should have a button so that when their helpfulness is completely off-base, you can tell the Googleplex so that it can start to understand where it erred.
