Nordisk råd-priser til Kim Leine, Seita Vuorela og Jani Ikonen

Blant alle prisene Nordisk råd deler ut en gang i året finnes den veletablerte Nordisk råds litteraturpris og den helt nyetablerte Nordisk råds barne- og ungdomslitteraturpris. Førstnevnte gikk til den dansk-norske forfatteren Kim Leine og sistnevnte gikk til finske Seita Vuorela og illustratør Jani Ikonen.

Kim Leine er født i Norge, men flyttet til Danmark som 17-åring, og har også jobbet på Grønland i 15 år. Han debuterte i 2007 med romanen Kalak, og har siden den gang gitt ut fire romaner. Han fikk Nordisk Råds litteraturpris for hans nyeste, Profetene i Evighetsfjorden. Prisen er på 350 000 danske kroner.

Om romanen: En grønlandsk kvinne sparkes i døden fra en høy klippe. Den danske presten er i ferd med å gå av hengslene av hjemlengsel og skjørbuk og allmenn fortvilelse. Kolonibestyreren forfølger ham, han har et uoppgjort regnskap med ham.  Kolonibestyrerens kone er på randen av sammenbrudd og ser presten som sin eneste venn og fortrolige. Pastorens grønlandske kateket fortæres av sinne og sorg. Kolonimannskapets lille gruppe menn går hverandre på nervene. Om vinteren ruger mørket og kulden over kolonien, om sommeren skyller lyset inn som en flodbølge, det er ikke lett å si hva som er verst.

Nordisk råds uttalelse om tildeling lyder som følger: ”Nordisk råds litteraturpris 2013 tildeles Kim Leine for romanen Profetene i Evighetsfjorden, et medrivende epos om undertrykkelse og opprør, et antikolonialistisk, vidt forgrenet verk, som fantaserer over mennesket som kropp og tanke”.

Historiens første barne- og ungdomslitteraturpris fra Nordisk råd gikk altså til finske Seita Vuorela og illustratøren Jani Ikonen for romanen Karikko. Vuorela er en forfatter og fotograf som i tillegg underviser i kreativ skriving. Flere av romanene hennes (inkludert Karikko) har blitt oversatt til andre språk. Prisen er på 350 000 danske kr.

Om romanen (hentet her): Karikko is a self-assured work, aware of its odd charm. It is intended for readers who prefer not to have pre-digested material fed to them; this book has been classified as both a young adult and adult book. Vuorela (née Parkkola) is excellent proof that the global boom in fantasy literature can be harnessed in support of an author’s own artistic ambitions to reinvigorate the genre. She has also crossed a difficult barrier by making it into the American publishing market. Karikko delves into feelings of decay, devastation and abandonment. The text is redolent with the smells of seaweed and mildew; there are textures pockmarked with rust and the melancholy of abandoned homes. At the centre of Karikko is a family with mismatched siblings – 14-year-old Mitja and his elder brother Waldemar – as well as abandonment, sorrow and guilt. Seita Vuorela structures her plot as a mosaic with flashbacks, foreshadowing and random bits. This technique is quite challenging for the reader but ultimately rewarding.

Nordisk råds uttalelse om tildelingen lyder som følger: «I en grenseoverskridende fortelling oppbygd som en mosaikk, gjengir forfatteren en brødresaga som treffer og beveger leseren til siste side. På særpreget måte veves folketro, mytologi og sagatradisjonen sammen i denne symboltunge romanen om sorg, hvor det unge menneskets søken finner sted i grenselandet mellom barn og voksen, land og vann, drøm og virkelighet, liv og død. Illustratørens bilder i svart/hvitt forener poetisk grafikk med fototeknikk og utvider det tankevekkende helhetsinntrykket.»

De øvrige nominerte til prisen var:
Kim Fupz Aakeson og Eva Eriksson (ill.) (Danmark)
Oscar K. og Dorte Karrebæk (ill.) (Danmark)
Minna Lindeberg og Linda Bondestam (ill.) (Finland)

Birgitta Sif (Island)
Aina Basso (Norge)
Inga H. Sætre (Norge)
Sara Lundberg (Sverige)
Jessica Schiefauer (Sverige)
Marjun Syderbø Kjelnæs (Færøyene)
Nuka K. Godtfredsen (ill.) og Martin Appelt (Grønland)

Hunger (Sult) by Knut Hamsun is one of my favourite books. Obviously had to read this new graphic novel adaptation by Martin Ernstsen. I'd happily recommend it, I find the text and illustrations perfectly compliment each other. Ernstsen captured the protagonist's inner turmoil very well! #knuthamsun #sult #hunger #martinernstsen #book #classic #klassiker #bok #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #graphicnovel #tegneserie #bookporn
One of my favourite hobbies, aside from reading, is embroidery. So obviously, when I came across "Threads of Life" by Clare Hunter, which claims to offer "A history of the world through the eye of a needle", I had to get it. #threadsoflife #clarehunter #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #bokorm #bookworm #nonfiction #history #historybook #embroidery #crafts
If you haven't checked out Postal yet, I thoroughly recommend it! It was the cover of the first volume that first caught my eye at my local comic book store, and once I'd devoured that one, I had to go get the remaining volumes. It consists of 7 volumes (27 issues) in total. The series is about a town where almost everyone is a criminal, either hiding out or looking to start fresh. The main character is the postman, who also happens to be the mayor's son. He has asperger's, and even though there are certain things he should just leave alone, he can't. Well worth a read! #postal #matthawkins #bryanhill #isaacgoodhart #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #comicbook #bookworm #bookporn
Looking forward to reading this one! Lovecraft had some shitty opinions, but I love the universe he created, where the mere idea of the horrifying old gods turn people mad left, right and centre. "Carter & Lovecraft" by Jonathan L. Howard apparently features a disgraced detective and a bookseller who also happens to be Lovecraft's last known descendant. When people start dying in weird ways, it might turn out that Lovecraft's stories were more than fiction... 🐙 #carterandlovecraft #jonathanlhoward #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #lesehest #cthulhu #lovecraft #hplovecraft #horror #tentacles #newbook #bookhaul #aloevera
I'll be honest, I bought this one mostly because of the cover... 🥰 Thankfully the plot seems very interesting too! Something has infected the world, and a bunch of girls have been left to fend for themselves. One of the blurbs say the following: "A feminist, LGBT+, sci-fi horror story with all the tantalizing elements of gore, mystery, war, and love you can ask for. Real, flawed, brave girls against a world gone mad. A shudderingly good read!" #wildergirls #rorypower #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #nybok #newbook #bookhaul
I've meant to read this book for so long. Have you read The Vegetarian, or another one of Han Kang's books? #thevegetarian #hankang #bok #book #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #lesetips #boktips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #manbookerinternationalprize #bookstagrammers
The story OF this book might actually be more interesting than the story IN it. The Norwegian novel "The Song of the Red Ruby" from 1956 presents the story of the young man Ask Burlefot and his journey through shame and disappointment towards "a deeper understanding of himself." But the novel's sexually explicit descriptions actually landed both the author, Agnar Mykle, and his publisher, Gyldendal, in court. The case is known as the Mykle case. The book initially received pretty favourable reviews, but some thought the contents were pornographic, filthy and obscene. This eventually led to the book being confiscated on a court order, and the author and Gyldendal's managing director was on trial for writing and spreading obscene material (which was illegal at the time). They were both eventually acquitted, but all of the books were removed from the market. The decision to withdraw the books was overturned by the supreme court the next year. Although they won the case, the court case and the intense media attention weighed heavily on Agnar Mykle, turning him into a recluse who almost exclusively spent time with only the closest friends and family. His writing took a serious hit as well. The Song of the Red Ruby is actually the second book in a trilogy, the first one ("Lasso Around the Moon") was published in 1954. It would take 9 years before he finished the trilogy with "Rubicon" in 1965. No pictures were published of him after 1957. It's hard to imagine today, for a Scandinavian at least, that something like this could happen, but it did. And it's not even that long ago!
Into the Wild tells the true story of Chris McCandless, a young man from a privileged family who one day decided to get rid of everything he owned and set off alone into the Alaskan wilds. Four months later he was found starved to death. You may have seen the movie with the same title. I did, years ago, and the story seems to have stuck with me. So I finally decided to pick up the book. #intothewild #chrismccandless #christophermccandless #jonkrakauer #alaska #book #bok #bøker #litteratur #literature #nonfiction #sakprosa #newbook #bookhaul #bookstagrammers #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #lesetips #bokelsker #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #instabook #bookish
Inn i naturen: 101 norske dikt is a collection of Norwegian poems relating to nature, and it is divided into seasons. I like that there are both old and familiar classics and new poems I've never read before. Also say hello to my snake plant. #inninaturen #samlaget #dikt #poetry #poems #snakeplant #svigemorstunge #julieholdalhansen #eirikvassenden #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #bok #book #bøker #bookstagrammers #bookhaul #newbook
You know what I like? Cephalopods. They are so wonderfully alien and intelligent (have you seen the Australian one who actually climbs on land to cross between bodies of water?). I like the giant squid in the lake outside of Hogwarts. I like the kraken. I like cthulhu and the other lovecraftian old gods. Here are three books about cephalopods that I'm looking forward to reading: Squid Empire by Danna Staaf, The Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery and Other Minds by Peter Godfrey-Smith. 🐙🦑 #squidempire #dannastaaf #thesoulofanoctopus #symontgomery #otherminds #petergodfreysmith #cephalopod #tentacle #octopus #squid #aloevera #plantporn #seamonster #cthulhu #kraken #giantsquid #bok #book #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #booksofinstagram #bookworm #bookporn
