– Josefin was an incredibly loved artist who has meant very much for many. A unique talent, with a great voice and scenpersonlighet. On the scene took her. But she was also my little sister. My beloved little sister who loved life. Which has now become a symbol of violence against women. But she was more than just a symbol. I want to show her who she was. All she was. So that we will remember her for the person she was when she was alive, " says Marie Nilsson Lind in a statement.
says in the same press release:
– It is beautifully and sad to see how Josefin come to life by Marie's words. Almost like she is resurrected. Her voice is so close. It feels nice to give out the book on 29 February, it is a day that doesn't actually exist. As if we are subjects of death a little bit by giving out Marie's book about Josefin on that particular day.
