From the internationally acclaimed author of the Kurt Wallander crime novels a powerful stand alone novel set in early twentieth century Sweden and Mozambiue whose vividly drawn female protagonist is awoken from her naïveté by her exposure to racism and by her own unexpected inner strengths Cold and poverty define Hanna Renström’s childhood in remote northern Sweden and in 1904 at nineteen she boards a ship for Australia in hope of a better life  But none of her hopes or fears prepares. I couldn t read this got about a third of the way through and uit This reads like a particularly dry biography tough slogging At one point there is an incident in which the residents of this small African town circa 1904 or so hear that there is an iceberg visible from the harbor They all go running down to look but there s nothing there This book is like that

REVIEW Minnet av en smutsig ängel

I became so bewitched while reading Henning Mankell s novel A Treacherous Paradise I took my time as I neared the end because I hoped the resolution would be a happy one Based on a real person the fictional protagonist Hanna Renstrom is a perpetually lost soul in a world full of rejection prejudice and cruelty Forced out on her own at a young age she endures an arduous journey that leads her from Sweden to Lourenco Marues Beira and the unknown Set in the early 1900s she eventually becomes the owner of a brothel and a very wealthy woman when her second husband dies Despite her feelings about the business and the heartless racism the Blacks were subject to in Colonial Africa she still manages to hang onto her humanity and befriend a chimpanzee named Carlos who becomes her animal soul mate Unbearably sad but beautifully written Mankell managed to give an ugly time an aura that mystified and gave pleasure at the same time
