Some Irish dude reviewed the book

.. And he is funny. Not many can pull off being funny while talking about LTROI.
I linked him here 'cause he said he wanted to talk about LTROI. Let's hope he shows up :)

Also this past week I have thought about LTROI a lot, even re-read some of my old fan-fictons. (which are, I mean, not that bad) I'm still here y'all :D

You're right, Trige; an excellent review. He quickly gets to the heart of the story, gives credit where credit is due (understanding how hard it is to create a sympathetic character in Håkan) and finally lets us in on the book's secret without giving anything away: It's humanity in the face of so much inhumanity.

(And I absolutely love his accent. :D )

Irish accent? Try the 1991 film "The Commitments" about a Dublin soul band. Or just see it for the music. One of my favs.
