Deliver Me Praised on National Television
Swedish national television SVT has listed three must-read books this summer, Malin Persson Giolito’s Deliver Me was highlighted with the motivation:
“The book follows the two friends Dogge and Billy and the story begins when they are 14 years old and Billy is shot to death in a playground. It revolves around gang violence, class and the vulnerability of young children and the reader takes part of the story through different perspectives; the two boys’, the committed local police officer, the single mothers and the owner of the local grocery store. It is one of the truest books that have been written about contemporary Sweden.”
Deliver Me was published in Sweden on February 28th by Wahlström & Widstrand.
