By Marie Hermanson

Ett oskrivet blad (A Blank Page) is about Reine and Angela – two outsiders in society and with no great hopes for the future. But they are attracted to each other and slowly create a common existence. When Angela gives birth to a son, Reine feels as if he has won the lottery. But the happiness doesn’t last for long. The child suffers from a serious disease and when Reine tries to raise money for the expensive treatment he starts a dramatic chain of events that quickly spirals out of control. Also his relationship with Angela changes; who is the woman behind the mask and what past secrets has she been keeping from him? Marie Hermanson has written a story with an in-depth understanding of two exposed human beings at the same time as it is a thriller full of surprising twists.
