"Lennart Bromander be entertained by the many points in Johan Nilsson's ”the Gothenburg shamans”"
"It is very much Gothenburg in Johan Nilsson's novel the Gothenburg shamans. Each street in which the main character finds himself in are as carefully registered, as when Patrick Modiano goes on the loose in Paris. At all smells of gothenburg atmosphere of the years 1989 and 2015, the two poles of the young, respectively, middle-aged Felix from Hylte moves between."
"The young newcomers lantisen quickly in a quirky company. When he finds himself in the most outrageous älskogsupplevelse in one of the rooms in the collective old apartment is going on the advanced schamanistisk andeutdrivning in another part. As by a miracle is a terminally ill young man to healthy rise from his bed."
"the next Day die, however, the young man, and the shaman and his followers disappear – as well as Felix newfound idealpartner. Twenty-six years later it is time for Felix, once again, recently divorced from another woman, to try to bring clarity to what really happened that time, and what became of the people."
"nNja, as here described may not seem grundhandlingen in Johan Nilsson's novel so compelling, and the language is small well free-flowing. But here are many good little points in addition to the extensive lokalskildringen."
"the Story is developed through a series of well-inserted coincidences, and it is clearly amusing only to follow Felix on his wobbly journey towards some kind of insight. Felix is what I like to call a ”Tintin-gestalt”, that is itself uninteresting but nevertheless a good excuse to line up the vibrant characters around."
"One of them is the woman he gets it together during the schamanseansen, a datapionjär, who early on sees opportunities to create art through advanced digital arrangements. Felix meets her again as the mysterious pop icon Istarte. Her ljudskaparverksamhet is an imaginative framework around the issue of what music is."
"nOch where in the apartment there is also a figure that leads to corresponding issues, when it comes to literature: Uffe, who is preparing his own budding authorship by a slamrande typewriter writing of Célines Journey to night's end. In this way, he intended to get into this masterpiece of its linguistic bloodstream in order to develop a style of your own."
"It is not so good, and twenty-six years later, Felix him sitting in a hidden nook, still busy with the same thing, because he discovered that there are several translations of the same work – and in addition, an original."
"nJag recall that in the Albert Camus the Plague is a similar figure, who constantly sits and grinds on the first sentence of a novel without getting longer. It is now well fifty years ago I read the Plague, and it is the bifiguren I best remember. Maybe it will be Uffe, that I especially will remember from the shamans."
