A couple of more books...!

Just before I left Sweden I bought four more pocket books. There is this offer of 'Buy 4, Pay for 3'. Fair enough. Three of them are Swedish and one is American.

The Content Reader

Nässlorna blomma by Harry Martinsson
A Swedish classic. Martinsson was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1974.
Blekingegatan 32 by Lena Einhorn
A book about Greta Garbo. The title is the address where she lived. Lena Einhorn wrote a very good biography about Siri von Essen, one of the wives of August Strindberg.

Alkemistens dotter by Carl-Michael Edenborgh
A new writer for me. It is about alchemists in the 18th century. Sounds interesting to me.

The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker

Also a new acquaintance to me. A successful New York lawyer, happily married with two children, just leaves without an explanation. Four years later, his wife finds an old love letter that was never posted, addressed to an unknown woman with an address in Burma. His daughter Julia hopes this means he is still alive and sets of to look for the woman in the letter. Sounds absolutely thrilling to me, and the Swedish reviews are ravishing.
Well, these an the other ten books I bought has been added to my TBR list, which turned a little bit longer again.
