Let there be light!

When I was a child I lived in the north of Sweden for 8 years and the winters were a time of perpetual darkness. Once in a while you would get a northern light, which was amazing, but the rest of the time was total darkness. As a child I can´t remember that it had a huge impact on my life, but as I have grown older those months have become harder and harder to get through…

Holiday in Prague

So I finally got my long vacation, but the last week leading up to it was basically torture, we had so much to do at work and because I was going away for four weeks I needed to make sure I was up to date on everything. I love my job, but not my workplace, so I need to adress that at some point. Vacation is a great time to ponder over life!

In the city of roses for a bit of crimetime

2016-08-16 13.23.00I´m in Visby, a small town on the island of Gotland on the east coast of Sweden for a festival. Crimetime is a festival for booklovers, and of course especially crime-literature.

I noticed at the airport that most of those crime-lovers are middle-aged or even elderly ladies (think miss Marple) and already on the plane I got into conversation with a lady who was planning her Primetime-experience the same way I have done the last week, with a program and a pen…
