Esteemed Piratenpriset goes to Karin Smirnoff

It was just announced that the Piratenpriset goes to Karin Smirnoff. Congratulations!
The award was given with the following motivation:

“This years winner made a breakthrough with an attention-grabbing trilogy of novels. With a language of its own and unforgettable characters [Smirnoff] has moved many readers. Despite depicting different parts of Sweden Smirnoff has a lot in common Fritiof Nilsson Piraten: not least the dark humor and an eye for the most vulnerable in our society.”

– It feels honoring and great fun, says Karin Smirnoff.
