We are so pleased to be able to share the news that the Swedish Christmas calendar 2017 will be based on author Erika Vallin’s wonderful trilogy Speglarnas hemlighet.
Speglarnas hemlighet is about the three friends Asrin, Lima and Max who travel to Eunomia through time and space, solving mysteries along the way. Eunomia was once a utopia but has turned into a world of terror and oppression, and can only be saved by Asrin and her friends. Erika Vallin tells a smart and diverse story set in a very fascinating and magical world.
Erica Vallin was born in Sundsvall and started writing at an early age. She has been a journalist since 2005 and is currently working as an Editor at Swedish ELLE Magazine.
SVT has been broadcasting the Christmas calendar for children since 1960. Each year a new story is selected and one episode a day airs from December 1st, until Christmas Eve.

It is with great honor we announce that this years Dedicafestival in Italy will be dedicated to our talented author Björn Larsson.
The festival takes place once a year for one week and is focused on one particular authorship. Björn Larsson’s novel Long John Silver was published in Italy in 1998 and quickly became a bestseller. Since then, his authorship has been widely known and he has received several international awards for his novels.
The Dedicafestival will acknowledge this authorship through readings, interviews, cinema, theatre and music. Björn Larsson’s importance as an author is summarized with the following quote:
“His books, even when abandoned the novelistic form, are characterized by the compelling stories; the pace; the thirst for freedom and truth that animates its protagonists. His writing is sober, elegant and pleasant, it is characterized by an apparent, induced lightness that does not require reflection, and helps create that mysterious link between a writer and his readers.”

Nordin Agency congratulates Ola Larsmo, who has been awarded Dagens Nyheter’s prestigious critics award Lagercrantzen for his novel Swede Hollow. The jury’s motivation:
“This year’s laureate is a popular educator who does not shy away from history’s darkest pages – he knows they must be exposed in order for us to understand the future. Undeterred, he uncovers how ideas and prejudice take place in language and culture. With an ever strong ethical tone he defends free speech and a solidarity with those who practice it.
Ola Larsmo is a critic who has become absolutely indispensable over time. Therefore, he is awarded Lagercrantzen 2017.”
