Frida Nilsson

Frida Nilsson (born 1979) is an author who made her debut with The Crow’s Incredible Hitchhiking Adventure in 2004, and in the following year both Me and Gorilla and the first book about Hedvig were published. Me and Gorilla, Me and Dante at the Dumpand Jagger, Jagger is a suite of free-standing books about outsiders and unconventional friendships. Taking place at a dump, a junk yard and on the street, the suite is simply called the ”trash trilogy”.

Frida’s authorship is characterized by tremendous humor and great sincerity. She writes about the big questions in life – friendship, death and love – and has been compared to fellow writers such as Roald Dahl and Barbro Lindgren. Frida is internationally successful, and her books have been nominated for the prestigious Deutscher Jugend Literaturpreis in Germany, and several literary awards in France. She has been an August Prize nominee three times, and won The Astrid Lindgren Prize in 2014.
