So... my parents aren't the biggest of readers. They tend to read whatever's on the booksellers' lists, which isn't necessarily something bad but I tend to dislike whatever is on the Swedish booksellers' lists. These two books have been bestsellers in Sweden. I do plan on reading them someday, because my parents did take the time to recommend them after all. But, we'll see if I enjoy them. I hope I do; it's been a while since I've read and liked modern Swedish literature.
