"Anna Andersson read Karin Valterssons debutbok"
"the Sisters Mikaela and Angelika is a bit like Saving and Waste – sister Mikaela hearty and in his name, the little sister of a reckless little boy. Mikaela was left in the town, with a boring job, a boring one, and responsibility for aging parents, while the Mrs went out in the world as quickly as she could."
"To everyone's surprise – including his own – landed her to end that marriage in the wealthy English upper class."
"But one day, she. Is it voluntary or has something happened to her? It is the summary of Karin Valterssons debutbok Angelika. Even if the sisters are in a bit of a rough crude – for contrast, I suppose, so it is they and their utvecklingskurvor that are interesting, and I think it was the entrance for Valtersson to write this book. Two people starting at the same point but end up at completely different places; what is free choice and what is others ' expectations?"
"nMan may never really get a sense of the sisters' relationship between them was particularly strong, but they get good with meat on the bones in their respective lives, angelika's class trip and Mikaelas life puzzle. The depictions of the Swedish women's pusslande with children, husband, job and home is starting to become something of a cultural cliché but Valtersson portray it well, with long andtrutna sentences where you almost have the same pulse as Mikaela."
"I know that you as a reviewer not to want a different book than the one you just read, but I think it is a bit of a shame that Valtersson decided to add a mystery in their story. It is, of course, an effective way to get the spin of a plot, and yes, the excitement is present – but it also makes the entire book more of a dussinberättelse. I had rather read more about the sisterhood, class, and opportunities for free choice, than even a deckargåta. Karin Valtersson was still something on the tracks."
