Snow by Ellen Mattson( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 132 libraries worldwide
"'The sky was now a block of darkness, punctured only by driving snow. The stars had gone out, the king was dead. And the wound on his arm refused to heal.'" "So begins Snow, the first novel by Ellen Mattson to be published in Britain - an exploration of an individual's codes of ethics and honour in the face of political and social collapse. The man is Jakob Torn, a small-town apothecary, stumbling drunkenly through the streets, a refugee from his own home, carrying a deep stab-wound inflicted by his wife. He does not understand what brought on this sudden violence, any more than he can come to terms with the death, in battle, of his king. When the town begins to fill with the starving, frost-bitten remnants of the defeated army, and Jakob is conscripted into helping to embalm the king's body, all his certainties are called into question." "Though set in 1718 on the west coast of Sweden, Snow is a modern and universal novel, interested less in the real-life historical drama that forms the backdrop than in the emotional and moral dilemma of Jakob Torn - a simple, loyal, honourable man who finds himself the damaged centre of a collapsing world."--BOOK JACKET

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
Fifteen years ago, a teenage girl is assaulted and raped as she picks flowers for a Midsummer's Eve ritual. Cut to the present, and a man is killed in a hit and run. He has no identification on him, he is not reported missing nor wanted by the police. At the same time, a priest and his wife are found dead in an apparent suicide. Fredrika Bergman, along with Alex Recht's federal investigation unit, is assigned to the seemingly unconnected cases. The investigations lead to a clandestine people-smuggling network: a new player on the international human smuggling market operating out of Bangkok. As the police slowly uncover the shocking hypocrisy behind the network, they begin to find a trail that runs all the way back to the 1980s, to a crime that went unreported, but whose consequences will reach further and deeper than anyone ever expected

"Long before the word 'genocide' was coined, the British invasion of Australia had annihilated approximately nine-tenths of the continent's original population of Aborigines. The creation of white Australia depended upon the legal fiction of 'terra nullius'--no man's land--the claim that Aboriginal lands were inhabited by people who would soon die out and who could be helped on the way to extinction if they lingered. Sven Lindqvist...travels 7,000 miles through Australia in search of places where belief in the rights of the white man and the annihilation of the 'lower races' were put into practice." -- dust jacket
