A collection of titles to take you on a Scandi-inspired literary journey.

From lagom to fika and Nordic noir to gravlax, Sweden’s culture is a smorgasbord to be savoured. Its legendary crime-writing offerings are underpinned by authors like Henning Mankell, Liza Marklund and Fredrik Backman, while its famed cultural attitude of living a lagom life, meaning just the right amount, is now practised widely across the globe. Here's a collection of books to give you a taste of Swedish life.
