Egenmäktigt Förfarande - Lena Andersson

The subject-matter is commonplace enough, yet not repellent - unrequited love to a true scumbag - but the characters and the style are so pretentious, conceited and stilted, this almost reads like a Paulo Coelho-novel.

How in all the world this book can have been awarded two of Sweden's most prestigious literary prizes is beyond me.

Mercifully short, though.
