Re: Arabic Text Discovered on Viking Burial Clothing

This actually turned out to be a figment of the imagination of the researcher in question. The matter has even turned out to generate a minor scientific row in editorials and culture pages of some of the major newspapers in Sweden, regarding over-use of what's commonly called "identity policy".

Re: Translation

Thanks, metoo. The translator did seem to mess a few things up. Pretty bad if I noticed. Don't think they were too familiar with English terms. I thought I general rule was that you always translate into your mother tongue? Not that it keeps translators into Swedish from messing up - I've seen nume...

Re: Bath of Blood

I've also wondered quite a bit about the blood and considered it a glitch of sorts in the story. I recently re-read the book and tried to make sense of it but finally just ended up "accepting" it. The fact that it isn't used for feeding is no problem however, since Håkan clearly elaborates on the fa...

Re: Last book(s) you read?

Re: Reviews

Interestingly I was at a 50's style hamburger restaurant North of Karlstad a few days ago and next to our table was a movie poster for The Man from Laramie starring James Stewart That was a coincidence, wasn't it? :-D I believe it wouldn't spoil Himmelstrand very much for our forum friends if we re...
