The Living and the Dead Lauded in Folkbladet Västerbotten

The Living and the Dead, Christoffer Carlsson’s latest novel, has been lauded in Folkbladet Västerbotten:

“Christoffer Carlsson is a master when it comes to describing rural areas and small towns. [The Living and the Dead] is set in Halland, in Skavböke, during Christmas 1999 and many years later, in the present. In 1999, everyone worries about the turn of the millennium and the local teenagers organize a party which is followed by a murder, and a series of other shocking events. One of the main characters, Sander, returns many years later and it is clear that the past still haunts everyone. Once again, Carlsson has accomplished a beautiful and engaging story about grief and loss, about memories and guilt. And it is so incredibly well written!”

The Living and the Dead was published in Sweden by Albert Bonniers Förlag on April 21st.
