Once again, we are indebted to the indefatigable editor and translator Sarah Death for affording us an insight into the current Scandinavian literary scene. Swedish Book Review 2011: 2 offers a collection of insights and extracts showcasing some of the most intriguing writing from that country. Production values of SBR are customarily high (admirable enough in itself, as one imagines there are certain budgetary restraints), but it is the quality of the insightful text here that really impresses. The final effect of the journal is, as ever, to whet the appetite for the piquant-sounding writing discussed here.
Contributors include Tom Geddes.
