A HOLE IN THE HEAD (HÅL I HUVUDET(
Minou is twenty three and lives together with her boyfriend Isak in Stockholm. At least until she one day gets home and finds an audio tape, on which Isak has taped a farewell message.
He has fallen in love with someone else, and since he knows she wouldn’t let him finish if he tried to talk to her, he choose to tape his explanation. On a damn audio tape! Abandoned, confused and unhappy Minou goes to Spain to get perspectives on her and Isak’s relation and hopefully get over him. A book full of recognition and unexpected humor.

Regardless of genre, Mats Strandberg has been praised for his sharp eye for character and dialogue. His characters are created with a large portion of psychological insight. They are never purely ”good” or ”evil”, but always relatable and believable. His novels are carefully plotted, the stories weaved with precision and confidence in the universe he has created.
