Sagt om “Broder själ, syster flamma”/Comments about “Brother soul, sister flame”
"It feels very credible in its description of how different values and beliefs mercilessly collide and how xenophobia and ignorance flourishes."
"It's a skilfully composed novel that deserves praise."
"... the violent opening doesn't prevent the build-up towards an even more intense end."
Åsa Böker (author of "Nordland"):
"It's a fantasy – but it's so much more! A reality-fantasy! A brutal depiction of real life, set in a fantasy world. [...] I think it's a magnificent work of literature."
"This is a well processed novel, written with commitment."
Amanda Franzén, lecteur
"One of the best books I've read in a long time. And definitely the best looking."
