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."

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 … Läs mer
Feel-good vs feel-bad. What’s the deal? Why write stories that make you feel bad, when you can tell tales with happy endings and fulfilled dreams? To me there is a simple answer. If the world was a happy place where … Läs mer
I finally managed to finish the last of four short-stories that I will submit to a Swedish publisher. For the first time in my life I have actually asked if the publisher is interested and received a positive reply. This … Läs mer
