ORIGINAL TITLE: Fallvatten
AUTHOR: Mikael Niemi
ORIGINAL PUBLISHER: Piratförlaget
It is an unusually rainy autumn up in the very north of Sweden. The region is a vast area of pure wilderness with majestic rivers, impressive dam constructions supply water reserves for power stations. But now the rains have made water levels rise everywhere.
“Hold on tight because this is a wild ride! And you won’t put the book down until the last page.”
Vestmanlands Läns Tidning
“Mikael Niemi creates terrific tension in his story… cinematically visual… his exuberant storytelling is unmistakable.”
“A successful, entertaining and carefully executed dramaturgical exercise in catastrophe adventure … fantastically well written.”
“Intelligently done and also filled with touching humour … it was a real pleasure to partake of it. Untrammelled imagination reigns here and one is defenceless against the writer’s whirling inspiration.”
“Fallvatten has a captivating energy. This is absolutely the very same Mikael Niemi who seduced readers and critics alike with Populärmusik från Vittula, the novel for which he was awarded the August Prize in 2000.”
”Haunting and glorious.”.
