the Document in Court Keepers , the debut novel brings to mind one of the most painful skillingtrycken of Fattigsverige. It is a story of one's life, with a few bright spots but more doom and gloom. It's the mid-1700s, the numbers on the Västerbotten coast. The intense colonization of the countryside that is going on will be the farmhand Anders Andersson and his new wife, the Magdalene, the sudden infant.

the only Problem is that Anders Andersson is a rare and ill-suited to running a farm. He is a dreamer, who really just wants to be out in the woods to shoot some small game and have a chat with them. In addition he has a whole personality that makes him run away as soon as something becomes too much of an effort. This tendency to bury our head in the sand, leading to a number of large and small disasters, Anders Andersson, indirectly, will be required to. Though it is the only one he really wanted was to get away.

A self-seeking person who is closest to the viewer.

this field is moving, the novel, and She manages just fine with that, take out a dubbelbottnad and svårkategoriserad person. At the same time, that is, in all cases, the eye is easy to feel a degree of sympathy in the face of Anders alienation, he is a greedy person who is always himself, and one whose substantial arbetsskygghet nothing was too much trouble for just about anything. Not least because of the ever-patient, his wife Magdalena and two daughters.

As pant of their lives, in a story that sometimes feels heavy handed in its gradual decline. Around them, the change in Västerbotten in northern sweden, the building and the land to be cultivated. However, Anders Andersson does not change, even if his failure leads to the really dire stuff. One of the few rays of hope's relationship with her daughter Has, in his dreamy disposition and a love for the woods. How it works for her, then I'm not going to reveal, but the fun isn't it.

the Novel suffers from some issues. Least She has a bushy, relative to the examples, and those are pouring in throughout the novel. It would measure a certain amount of cleaning up the metaphors. Sometimes he's right, but quite often the reader is most puzzled by. In a sentence such as ”the Cries of the descending sun, were destroyed to horisontens bågade the blade, and reached me only to the whisperings of the spirit” jar, and, above all, you have to wonder why the sun is calling and as a whole, the picture is even there – which is never a good sign.

However, I do think that the Least She will eventually be able to rein in his imagery if he is to continue to grow as an author. And that's what I hope he does. The great thing about this novel is that it constitutes a defense of the right to be different; at the same time, it is not going of the high price the environment pays.
