"Göteborgs-Posten Literature Prize 2013 is awarded Hanna Nordenhök for an authorship that boldly makes its way from the lines of poetry to the novel's memory depth where the past is both falling apart and consisting in a luminous and precisely measured prose."

After two very well-received poetry collections, Hiatus (2007) and Bländare (2009), she debuted as a novelist with Promenaderna i Dalby Hage (2011). her latest novel Det vita huset i Simpang was published in 2013.
