Haplogroup Q is believed to have originated in central Asia, then spread eastward across Asia into the Americas, which is the reason it's normally thought of an an Amerindian haplogroup.  However, it crops up in Scandinavian populations, probably through pre-Viking contact with western Siberian populations where it is known there was cultural diffusion, then was carried further historically with the Vikings.  I recommend the mention of Haplogroup Q on this page of the Shetland Islands Project and the Haplogroup Q entry at Wikipedia, for an introduction to the topic.

Our subject has a few 12/12 matches in the FTDNA database and at Ysearch (all with Scandinavian surnames), but no significant matches at 25 or 37 markers, so his 37-marker haplotype remains unique.  It also places him in Northwest European Group 1 of the Haplogroup Q Project at FTDNA.
This individual has been deep SNP tested at FTDNA, with these results:
M346+ L53+ L54+ L804+ M3- M19- M191- M199- M323-
  *Compiled 13 Jun 2010 by DGM from the Haplogroup Q Project at FTDNA.

What constitutes a match?
Matches in other surnames are usually mere coincidence, so please ignore them — I'll let you know when you shouldn't!
For 12 markers:  9 or less is a non-relative; 10-12, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For 25 markers:  21 or less is a non-relative; 22-25, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For 37 markers:  31 or less is a non-relative; 32-37, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For 67 markers:  57 or less is a non-relative; 58-67, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For 111 markers:  100 or less is a non-relative; 101-111, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For any test:  0 matching markers, please contact NASA.
