Jonas Gardell – Jenny

Yesterday I finished the novel ”Jenny” by Swedish author Jonas Gardell. The book is the third and final instalment of his series about Juha Lindström, Gardell’s alter ego, and his childhood. The story is the continuing of ”En Komikers Uppväxt” (The Grow of a Comedian) and ”Ett UFO Gör Entré” (An Alien’s Entry), and is about how Juha 25 years later receives a letter from Jenny, a classmate of his, in which she explains what really happened to her the last night in ninth grade, on which he never showed up.

The story is sad, but just as the other books in the series it’s perfectly excellently written. I love it.
