The Brothers Lionheart pdf

The Brothers Lionheart (Swedish: Bröderna Lejonhjärta) is a children’s fantasy novel written by Astrid Lindgren. It was published in the autumn of 1973 and has been translated into 46 languages. Many of its themes are unusually dark and heavy for the children’s book genre. Disease, death, tyranny, betrayal and rebellion are some of the dark themes that permeate the story. The lighter themes of the book involve platonic love, loyalty, hope, courage and pacifism.,The two main characters are two brothers; the older Jonatan and the younger Karl. The two brothers’ surname was originally Lion, but they are generally known as Lionheart. Karl’s nickname is Skorpan (Rusky) since Jonatan likes these typical Swedish toasts or crusts.,In Nangijala, a land in “the campfires and storytelling days”, the brothers experience adventures. Together with a resistance group they lead the struggle against the evil Tengil, who rules with the aid of the fearsome fire-breathing dragon, Katla.

The Man in the Lighthouse pdf

All his life, Viggo Larssen has been haunted by the same troubling dream, which he calls the Omen—a vision of a woman beckoning to him from the surface of a churning sea. Now, as he broods over his shipwrecked existence in a remote lighthouse off the outermost coast of Denmark, he is about to be borne backward by the current to a past he thought he had escaped forever.,On the Danish mainland, the widowed mother of the nation’s prime minister mysteriously vanishes from her prestigious nursing home. As the police search for clues, evidence mounts that her disappearance is tied to an unsolved crime from Viggo’s childhood. Told through the eyes of multiple characters from Viggo’s old neighborhood, Erik Valeur’s dark, serpentine mystery is a profound meditation on the persistence of memory, the power of dreams, and the secrets we hide from one another—and ourselves.

Inspector Kari Vaara returns, more haunted than ever, in the follow- up to Snow Angels, “a must for fans of the international crime novel.” (Booklist) ,The Sufia Elmi case left Kari Vaara with a scarred face, chronic insomnia, a constant migraine, and a full body count’s worth of ghosts.

Mancano pochi giorni a Natale e nello squallido seminterrato di un grande albergo di Reykjavik viene ritrovato il cadavere di un uomo vestito da Babbo Natale e con i pantaloni abbassati. Si tratta del portiere dell’albergo, che sotto le feste si travestiva per divertire i piccoli ospiti. Nella sua misera stanzetta vengono rinvenuti alcuni vecchi dischi in vinile e un poster di Shirley Temple. L’indagine si rivela molto difficile fin da subito per l’agente Erlendur, costretto a confrontarsi con la serie di grotteschi personaggi che popolano l’albergo, e con il marcio nascosto dietro la facciata di irreprensibilità ed eleganza. Ma la rivelazione più scioccante sarà il passato della vittima, un ex bambino prodigio, solista nel coro delle voci bianche di Hafnarfjòrdur, che aveva anche inciso due quarantacinque giri a tiratura limitata, diventati ora una rarità di inestimabile valore per i collezionisti.
