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."

Sharon Boltons A Dark and Twisted Tide is a crime novel. Wow! My second, if you don’t count The Adventures and stuff of Mr. Holmes, Monsieur Poirot and Miss Marple. My experience is therefore thin. My liking is, if possible, … Continue reading

Neil Gaiman is one of the writers I admire most, at least of the ones who still have a pulse. The problem is: I haven’t actually read that much of him. The Sandman, granted, The Graveyard Book, and I’ve seen … Continue reading

British author Susanna Clarke gave us one of the best fantasy novels ever with Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell in 2004. It was a stilistic triumph, experimental and efficient, in spite of it’s clocking in at over 700 pages. How do you … Continue reading
The legend of Noah has to be considered the most symbolic of all the biblical myths. After all, it is possible to wake the dead (hospitals do it every day all over the world) and cars slide on water, if … Continue reading
