this is going to be a hard one to answer because it needs the input of people familiar with both scandanavian lutefisk and jewish east european gefiltre fish. I have heard it said that with lutefisk, cod treated with lye, you either love it or despise it. no lye with gefiltre but i dont know anyone who is neutral about it (it is a small lump of pike and and or carp that is poached i believe). I once told an aquaintance that gefiltre is a jewish lutefisk.
