    Torbjörn Flygt

    Top Ten Books

    One of Sweden's most popular authors with nine books to his name, Torbjörn Flygt is best known for his 2001 novel “Underdog,” which won the country's prestigious August Prize, and has since been translated into multiple languages (if not yet in English). Set in the southern city Malmö in the 1970s, its protagonist, Johan Kraft, serves as a mechanism for Flygt to examine Sweden's changing social society with clear-eyed compassion. Kraft returned in Flygt's 2011 novel, “Outsider,” this time set in the 1980s in the aftermath of the murder of the country's prime minister, Olaf Palme, just as the country's lauded welfare state begin to buckle. On Tuesday 13 June, Flygt will read at a special One Grand Books salon at Alma in Stockholm.

    Below are Torbjörn Flygt's favorite books, available to purchase individually or as a set.
