Nordic Book Club: "The Colonel's Wife" by Rosa Liksom


Read and discuss Nordic literature in translation as part of our Nordic Book Club.

About this Event

Read and discuss Scandinavian literature in translation as part of our Nordic Book Club. Each month we select a novel from some of the best Nordic literary voices. Discussions typically take place the last Tuesday of the month at Scandinavia House and online in our Goodreads group during the last week of the month. This week we’re reading The Colonel’s Wife by Rosa Liksom.

In the final twilit moments of her life, an elderly woman looks back on her childhood as the daughter of a member of the right-wing Finnish Whites before World War II, and her relationship with the much older and domineering Colonel, over wartime years in which they fraternized with the Nazi elite. As both the marriage and the war become increasingly dark and destructive, the narrator’s authoritarian tendencies and engagement with the natural world reveal a complex individual psychology and a warning about the perils of nationalism.
