The book launch

My book about Hasse Ekman, The Man from the Third Row - Hasse Ekman, Swedish Cinema and the Long Shadow of Ingmar Bergman (Berghahn Books), has been released today and is now available in stores and online, around the world. That is pretty fabulous!

Now I feel inclined to rest on my laurels for a little while, so I am taking a November break from writing. But I will be back here soon, on Friday, 2 December. Then anything's possible.

For those keen to read more on the subject of Swedish film history, here are some links to stuff I have written before:
