Swedish writer from my childhood, brings back good literary memories. It’s about a sad orphan boy who is brought by a genie to his real father in another world. The reason he is there is to win a battle over some awful and powerful man. On his way he meets people with each their special thing, who helps him. Really classic fairy tale.

Re-read this one, and enjoyed it as much as the last time. A strong novel about a young Brazilian girl going to Switzerland and becomes a prostitute. I like how his novels are so inspired and partly/loosely based on true stories.
Recommended by my little sister. Read it over the weekend. Kind of annoying at first, but then it grew to be amazing and lovely. The kind of story that stays with you for a long time.
Stole/borrowed this book in El Zonte, El Salvador, when I was there this winter. A beautiful and catching novel. I wish I didn’t read it so I could read it again for the first time.
