A Fairy Tale
Jonas T. Bengtsson (b. 1976) stunned the Danish literary scene in 2005 with his critically acclaimed and award-winning debut Amina’s Letters. Hailed as “an extraordinary new voice” by critics, Bengtsson went on to write Submarino, a literary punch in the face that consolidated his position as the master of disturbing and authentic portrayals of Copenhagen’s underworld. Bengtsson writes with an uncanny, raw realism and maturity, a tone unlike any other to have come out of the Nordic countries.
