Sweet Home Dalarna

Blacksmith apprentice Madde Johansson is content with her comfortable life in the small village in Dalarna, where she was also born and raised. Days of work, evenings with a bowl of crisps in front of the tv, casual sex with her ex Jonte and Friday nights drinking beer with best friend Klara at the local hotel. Surely that’s good enough?

But when big city boy Niklas enters Madde’s life on a warm summer’s day, everything changes. His light-blue gaze and infectious mischief causes Madde to fall in love for the very first time. As the summer comes to an end, Madde is faced with a crucial choice: will she dare to leave the village behind and join Niklas in Stockholm? How do you know where you belong? And are there lessons to be learned from her idol Janis Joplin’s message Try Just a Little Bit Harder?

Sweet Home Dalarna is a humorous feelgood novel with lots of empathy, starring a remarkably refreshing heroine who is just as amiable as she is eccentric.
