City of Light

Swedish literary critic Maria Schottenius describes City lof Light as one of the greatest Swedish fiction projects of the twentieth century, structured as a mandala and particularly effective if read as interwoven with a Jungian process of individuation.

Anne-Marie is a middle-aged woman returning to the Swedish town where she grew up to sell the old house she has inherited from her father. Memories of the past are everywhere, ensnaring her.
