As we suspected, At a Loss, Agnes Lidbeck's third novel, has been hugely popular with the Swedish critics. Not only has she been compared to literary greats such as Virginia Woolf and Ingmar Bergman, but the novel has also been described as "an existential horror story" and the triptych recognised as "a distressingly universal work about contemporary life that will be relevant for some time to come".
The critical success is also reflected in the bestseller charts, where Lidbeck's book has been prominent and sold more than 4.300 copies this far.
