Angel Among Shadows
ORIGINAL TITLE: Ängel bland skuggor
AUTHOR: Niklas Rådström
ORIGINAL PUBLISHER: Wahlström & Widstrand
A dying photographer recounts his life and an episode from his early childhood: the intense experience of love he shared with his little brother around their discovery of a secret language based on silence. A teenage boy tries to restore his father’s dignity by bringing back his father’s lost motorcycle. A deaf boy wanders into the underworld to save his sister from the death realm of drug abuse.
Niklas Rådström’s Angel Among Shadows is full of intrigue and as rich in destinies, showdowns and erotic entanglements as an ancient myth. It is at once an intense depiction of the present and an incandescent saga that spans several decades.
