Hello, dear reader! Here at my blog you will find glimpses of joy, Stockholm, my numerous museum visits, funny and serious stuff worth noticing - all in journalese and sometimes in Swedish. With this also comes a pinch of analyses and reflections. This is a dynamic blog, meaning I sometimes go back in the archive and update the posts. If you are following my blog from a phone, click on "View web version" at the bottom of the page - it facilitates the reading. Enjoy! /Jana :)

"The Girl on the Train" by Paula Hawkins
I decided to fall for the ad the pocket book shop put right in my way: a Swedish translation of an English thriller. For the first 200 something pages, it was quite a depressive read, though the author did a good job with making the characters as irrational as humans in distress are. Everything was very credible. It did not happen much though, and yet it did. Then it burst with excitement during the last 150 or so pages.
