Jägarna på Karinhall

The Hunters of Karinhall

by Carl-Henning Wijkmark

“This is a story inspired by Rabelais’ excesses, Huysmann’s decadence and Marquis de Sade's perversions and which probably got the Swedish people to choke on their coffee in unison when it came out in 1972.
Personally, I have to applaud Carl-Henning Wijkmark’s rare courage. Not much has changed in the four decades since his debut. Even today The Hunters at Karinhall is one of the funniest novels written in the Swedish language.” Gabriella Håkansson, Dagens Nyheter July 2013

Cover: Norwegian edition published by Pelikanen in 2014.
