The Lovers

Mats Wahl

The fifth and final part of the Blood Rain series.

Elin’s daughter Hallgerd has grown up and is now a celebrated rock star living a dissolute life. When a film showing her in intimate relations with the Borlänge Gang’s frontman is spread online, not only her own life but also Elin’s political life begins to crack. Mats Wahl masterfully weaves the story of the struggle for survival in a not entirely unrealistic future.

Mats Wahl was born in Malmö in 1945 and is currently living in Stockholm. He is one of Sweden’s leading writers for young people and his books have been translated into fourteen lan guages. Since his debut in 1978, he has written more than 50 books, plays and film scripts. He has received numerous awards for his work. For his YA novel Vinterviken he was awarded the August Prize and prestigious Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis. Besides his work as an author, he is also a lecturer and teacher.

”The atmosphere, family feuds and language in Mats Wahl’s frightening and tremendously skillfully composed book, the first part of the series Bloodrain, is really like an Icelandic saga [...] This could be Mats Wahl’s strongest writing yet” - Västerbottens-kuriren
