Words from the agent

Sin or shame? Liberation or rules? Sadness or euphoria? We all know that the coin has two sides. We, the people of the north know this for sure. Each year we're torn between the gentle midnight sun in the summer and the freezing darkness in the winter. The diversity, a happy model society on one hand and a country characterized by order and regulations on the other, has shaped our mentality. No wonder the Scandinavian books show traces of this constant meeting between happiness and sorrow.


Do you want to know more about the “lightdark” Scandinavia? Pick a crime story, a novel, a self help book or maybe some sexual fantasies from the rich flora of Grand Agency’s authors.
