Can anyone recommend to me Swedish literature? I have been studying the language for months now and I think it's time to make something of it.

Thank you.

>""""literature"""" in any European language aside from English, German, Russian, and the Romances
Yeah, no. This hasn't existed for over 800 years.
>>
>>7612547

all i know is strinberg and detective novels

Read the Millenium trilogy, really good books. I've only read the second one (kek) but I really enjoyed it. Inb4 it's not highbrow enough for /lit/

And also, Swedish crime/police novels and shows are the best in the world (along with Denmark and Norway I'm sure). Especially if you are North American, the ones here are a farce in comparison.

Hjalmar Söderberg
Pär Lagerkvist
August Strindberg
Frans G. Bengtsson
Gunnar Ekelöf (poetry)
Selma Lagerlöf
Harry Martinsson

Personal favourite is Söderberg and Lagerkvist.

Hello Ahmed.

Hi :)

>>7612627
Absolutely. I read him in Dutch though, but the dutch translator is said to have done a wonderful job though
>>
>>7612622
Also, Söderberg has some GOAT short stories that might be good for learners not wanting to invest themselves into full length novels.

kill urself plz

Harry Martinsson is amazing
"En lite blåsa i guds andes glas"
is stuck in my head forever

if edgy shit is your thing spiced with some Nietzsche read Äldreomsorgen i övre kågedalen
and if you like Swedish history Fänrik ståls sägner is an awesome poetic work

>Fänrik ståls sägner

Isn't that Finnish?

>>7612718
Originally written in swedish about an epoch in swedish history

>>7612547
Start with this edgelord. He rapes a 9 year old girl at Gröna Lund, and is offered to sleep next to the youngest fertile girl in a Georgian village during his travels there.
>>
>>7612547
I like Erik Lindegren

>>7612688
>Äldreomsorgen i övre kågedalen
This book reads like it was made for chaners. There's an English translation called Assisted Living and the author is called Nikanor Teratologen.
>>
>>7613589
He also wrote a translation of Thus Spoke Zarathustra.

>Äldreomsorgen i övre kågedalen

Seems like copies of this shit is expensive as fuck. At least my library seems to have one.

Good book desu
have a nice quote

Han va vrång på judebolsjevismen men grät otröstlit när Stalin dog 53. - ”Han gav dom jävlarna
va dom tålde”, snyfta han.


He was mad at judeobolshevism
but cried uncontrollably when Stalin died 53. - "He gave those bastards what they deserved" he cried

I really have a hard time thinking translation will do this book justice

Reading this right now. I enjoyed the story where he gets a heart transplant from a raped and murdered girl, and gradually feels himself becoming her.
