REVIEW

Mamma

Adrian Perera's first novel is a claustrophobic story in four languages and plays with the reader’s assumptions from the word go.

LATEST REVIEW

Nattexpressen

Nattexpressen is an exciting story for children that opens up opportunities for conversations on a hard topic: how to talk about people who have changed or who are no longer themselves.

REVIEW

Fallvatten

The idea of a Swedish disaster story is interesting in itself. The Hollywood output of scare stories is mind-numbing, but something about setting this story in rural Sweden makes it more unsettling than the most imaginative zombie invasion; we expect the Swedish countryside to be safe and uneventful.
