«One of the most talked about books this spring ... Stolen is a moving, multifaceted, and important contemporary novel that highlights many serious themes and portrays a society and a situation that needs to be discussed many times over. A well-written story that leaves a lasting impression»

P4 Västernorrland (SE)

«A deeply gripping and atmospheric novel that will take hold of your heart. Filled with compelling characters and a formidable landscape - this debut is a triumph!»

DANIELLE DANIEL, award-winning author of DAUGHTERS OF THE DEER

«In a careful and at times poetic prose [Laestadius] portrays milieus, conflicts, and magic from an area that has long been underrepresented in literary fiction in Sweden»

Expressen (SE)

«Ann-Helén Laestadius’s writing flows seamlessly, with a piercing psychological and keen eye for societal issues. I am especially happy about the elegant ending, that beautifully ties the circle together and brings hope of a brighter future»

Hufvudstadsbladet (FI)

«A sharp and socially critical novel with an intensity that makes it powerful and strong ... Whatever you do, don’t miss out on this novel»

Dagens Nyheter (SE)

«Laestadius writes with burning intensity about a community around the Arctic Circle that is rarely portrayed. Her commitment shines through and constantly urges the reader to continue reading. It may be foolhardy to name this year’s most powerful book as early as February. But that Stolen is one of the most important Swedish books of the year is indisputable»

Demokraatti (FI)

«Stolen is not only a fierce cry for justice, but also an empathic and beautiful story about the love of and nature»

Norra Skåne (SE)

«Intimately and vividly portrayed. The novel gives beautiful insights into the life of the Sámi and their struggle for justice. An accessible and at the same time deep, beautiful, and suspenseful tale of a part of the world many of us know very little about. It deserves a large audience»

BTJ (SE)

«The best trick of fiction is how it can make us feel part of something, and Laestadius does just that ... Incredibly thrilling»

Jönköpings-Posten (SE)

«Both a thrilling page-turner and a story to remember for a long time to come»

Sundsvalls Tidning (SE)

«Stolen is an important novel that provides insight into modern Sámi life. This is the first step in a new direction for an author with a crucial message: I will be sure to follow her going forward»

Svenska Dagbladet (SE)

«A stunningly suspenseful, glowing story, in which a perceptive narrator brings a whole new world to the reader»

Helsingin Sanomat

«A splendid novel. [...] The characters are lovingly and skillfully portrayed, in such a way that makes it hard to let go of them afterwards»

Suomen Kuvalehti

«Viscerally clear fiction of both the fractured, violent nature of the Sámi’s relationship with their Nordic occupiers and the coming of age of an innocent girl. Written with such cool clarity, Stolen is a perfect metaphor of our slippery grip on humanity and our tenuous relationship with the Earth»

TANYA TALAGA, bestselling author of SEVEN FALLEN FEATHERS

«Sámi author Ann-Helén Laestadius has written a fresh, devastating, and insightful novel about Sámi life and the struggle for justice in a rapidly changing world. A love for the imperiled landscape reverberates throughout this engaging read»

MEGAN MAYHEW BERGMAN, author of HOW STRANGE A SEASON

«Stolen is an extraordinary novel. A coming-of-age-story you'll get lost in, about youth and heritage and the never-ending struggle to be allowed to exist. Although set in the coldest and most northern part of Scandinavia, I'm convinced it’s a universal story to be loved everywhere in the world»

FREDRIK BACKMAN, author of A MAN CALLED OVE

«Beautiful and devastating, Stolen shines a powerful and important light on the Sámi community and the growing challenges they face in a changing world»

CAROLE JOHNSTONE, author of MIRRORLAND

«Stolen is in equal measure a gripping and thrilling mystery as it is a testament to the continued beating heart of Sámi life. Ann-Helén Laestadius takes her place as an important voice in world Indigenous literature»

MICHELLE GOOD, author of FIVE LITTLE INDIANS

«Laestadius’s nuanced English-language debut is a story of a family torn apart by cultural tensions ... The sense of place and character development make for an affecting portrait of the Sámi’s disenfranchisement»

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

«A revelatory account of not-well-known assaults on the rights of an Indigenous group … The legacies of long-held social prejudices against the Indigenous group - racism, economic insecurity, and the traumas borne by the community’s elders who had been removed from the group in childhood and sent to “nomad schools” - continue to haunt Sámi life with devastating effects … Looming over the tale is the spectre of climate change and its impacts on the traditional Sámi herding methods»
