The Buzz in Sweden

Have found quite a few reviews of the Swedish translation

I have to rely on Google translator's sometimes bizarre, often poetic, but usually helpful renditions of the Swedish into English, to note that the buzz seems very positive on the whole. Perhaps, going through the terrible winter, readers in Sweden are enjoying Janet Frame's brilliant descriptions of the snow and the cold in one of the coldest winters England had suffered (the novel was written during the big freeze of 1963) until, well, this winter.
