Memoirs of a Child (Mårbacka II)

A quirky miniature delight, full of insight, wisdom and humour. With conscious artistry, Nobel laureate Selma Lagerlöf lifts the lid on a rural childhood that propelled her into a glorious lifetime of creative writing.

In this second part of her notionally autobiographical trilogy, Selma Lagerlöf broadens the perspective from the farm where she grew up to include the people and places around Lake Fryken in her beloved Värmland county. The personal creation myth which she began in Mårbacka continues here with a focus on the self-discipline and imagination needed to fulfil a childhood ambition to become an author. It is hard work that sometimes means taking a stand against convention but also a deeply enriching process in a home steeped in storytelling and books. The mature author reveals the roots of the young bibliophile’s growing skill in deploying fiction to manipulate and embellish reality, producing a wryly charming, tongue-in-cheek account that we should beware of taking at face value.

The Axe Woman

Two cousins and rivals, two farms, and a woman who could be a murderess or an exploited victim. A traumatised DI Barbarotti is forced to fly to the mountains of Norrland in pursuit of the truth.

A fifth outing for Inspector Barbarotti of the Kymlinge police. Returning to his desk too soon after personal trauma, the sleepless detective is faced with taking another look at two old cases, a murder and a disappearance. How safe was the conviction, and where has the man on the moped vanished to? Is the woman the press called the Axe Woman a dangerous convict, an exploited victim, or more complicated than both those stereotypes imply? A brain-fogged Barbarotti ends up travelling to the magnificent fells of the Swedish north to secure a vital interview, and nothing is ultimately quite what it seemed.

Dr. B.

The former director of the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm makes his literary debut with this dramatic and riveting novel of book publishing, émigrés, spies, and diplomats in World War II Sweden, based on his grandfather’s life.

In 1933, after Hitler and the Nazi Party consolidated power in Germany, Immanuel Birnbaum, a German Jewish journalist based in Warsaw, is forbidden from writing for newspapers in his homeland. Six years later, just months before the German invasion of Poland that ignites World War II, Immanuel escapes to Sweden with his wife and two young sons. A fascinating portrayal of the astonishing connections and often mysterious players illuminated by his grandfather’s remarkable wartime life.

Eleanor. Her steadfast boyfriend, Sebastian. Her reckless aunt, Veronika. The lawyer. All will go to this house of secrets, looking for answers. But as they get closer to uncovering the truth, they’ll wish they had never come to disturb what rests there.
