I googled around and found a page on "security hinges" for just that purpose:Makes sense. Strangely, in Scandinavia the doors open outwards. When we’ve been watching some Scandi murder mystery we’re always surprised when someone knocks at a door and it opens outwards. I wonder what they do with their pins?
When an exterior door opens outwards, the hinge pins are exposed. If the hinges on the door are standard exterior hinges, the hinge pins can easily be removed making your home conveniently accessible to thieves.
Or the Scandanavians may have something clever like their cabinet hinges instead?
