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."

It has happened many times, of course, but now when I’ve actually published a novel it strikes me harder: the apparent lack of patience among readers. ”If the first twenty pages don’t get me hooked I put the book away.” … Läs mer
Here are two clips from the Indie Book Awards ceremony in Gothenburg this year. Swedish journalist Helena Frank recorded the ceremony and interviewed me afterwards. And yes, of course it’s in Swedish! Silly question. Here’s the ceremony: And here’s … Läs mer
