The story about Swedish immigrants coming to the Danish island, Bornholm, at the end of 19th century. The film version won the Academy Award as Best Foreign Language Film in 1989. I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t read this book (so many books, so little time), but it is on my to read list and I know it’s often read in Danish high schools.
