Brorsan är mätt

Brother Is Full

by Mirja Unge

Mirja Unge’s position as one of Sweden’s most important young female writers was established with her latest novel Motsols.

Now she has written a collection of short stories where the people and settings are familiar from her previous works, but appear in a sharper light. For instance in the short story, Det var i går bara, in which two girls are sitting on a bus chatting casually about their piss-up the night before, until the reader suddenly realises that one of the girls is describing a rape. Or in Brorsan är mätt, which tells the story of a sister who receives a visit from her brother who has escaped from an institution. He lies about it and she doesn’t reveal that she already knows, and that the police are on their way.
