The biography of Astrid Lindgren by Jens Andersen is the first Nordic Astrid Lindgren-biography in forty years. It is based on a huge number of never-before-published letters, diaries and photographs, as well as a six-month long conversation with Astrid Lindgren’s daughter Karin Nyman, who closely followed her famous mother’s career and conflicts with fame, wealth, loneliness, power - and men.
