Personal Quote:

(On the question if she would like to be a member of the Swedish Academy.) "The Swedish Academy? What use would they have of an old woman that is half blind, half deaf and totally crazy?" See more »


Lindgren was immensely popular in her home country. Few Swedes will ever forget her restful voice reading the stories that have become an integrated part of Swedish culture and collective consciousness. A theme park, displaying several of the settings from her books, opened in 1989 in her hometown, and attracts about 300,000 visitors yearly. See more »
