About the series:
Come back in time with us, and meet the cast out bear hunter Taneli and the survivor Lina in a story you will never forget.
In the borderlands between Norwegian Hedmark and Swedish Värmland in the 19th century, we meet the ethnic minority of the Wood-Finns. Lina is wandering the woods with a new-born baby in her arms. She meets Taneli, a loner feared by society because of a murder he supposedly has committed. Together they try to build a life.
We also get to know the other Finns in the area, like the drunkard Oluf, the witch Kaisa and the beautiful Hilda. In a ravishing, raw, tender and at times deeply moving way, Britt Karin Larsen tell the tale about the fight to survive and the bonds to nature that Lina, Taneli and the others collect strength and life from. The author gives the Forrest Finn-culture a voice, and she does it with tender intensity and great respect.
