Life - a users manual, part II
and big crimes is an anthology of five short novels by Elisabeth
Nilsson. The first is about a young woman who, in like her own words,
describes life after high school, during the great boom in the late
nineteen-eighties. A time when ordinary people still had neither
computers nor cell phones, but instead it was very easy to get a job, in
almost any sector. The main character, Elizabeth, is shaped by an
over-protected upbringing in one of Stockholm's suburbs. Although she
does not believe it herself, others think that she is pretty.
Unwittingly, she attracts people to try to take care of her, with both
more and less successful results. In part II Elisabeth's adventures
continue before the upcoming recession."Mia and Stefan," is about a young couple on a road trip in Germany. The
text describes first how Mia and then how Stefan perceives the events
up to the impending separation. The last story is about a frustrated young man and his way to being classified as a criminal.
