Depends on what you mean by summary; do you want reviews including plot details and full spoilers or just hints about what the stories are about?

I had to think for some time before I understood what you meant. I don't think the correct title in English would be Vicar, since it is not about a priest. The Swedis name of the story is Vikarien - which means "The Substitute", in this case more specifically The Substitute Teacher :lol:
And true, it's a good story. But I would think it pretty pointless to "tell" you the plot details about every story, it's better you wait until later this year when the book will be published in English so you can read them yourself - including Let The Old Dreams Die which is due to be included in the English version.
In case you're able to read German it's already available in German, titled Im Verborgenen - roughly meaning 'In the hidden' or 'In hiding'.
