In the middle of the advertising heap in Marie Lindsjös mailbox, is a padded envelope waiting. At the same time, Niklas and Gabriel are having a Friday’s beer, reflecting on life as it was and what it became.
Not far from there, in a bright and fresh apartment downtown Stockholm, Ylva tries to survive the fact that spring has arrived, and that Niklas does not live with her and her daughter anymore.
When Marie opens the padded envelope, she finds that fate, or, if it is auntie Greta, has pointed out a direction for her; Solviken, a colorful renovation object in the archipelago outside Stockholm. Marie, who knows how the Forty-years crisis approaches in speedy steps, knows that she has nothing to lose and throws herself into the unknown.
It will be a tumultuous outer and inner journey, not just for her but also for Niklas, Ylva and Gabriel as she walks on the road and whose fate is interwoven with her life, she just doesn’t know it yet.
Solviken is a warm relationship novel about the longing for love and confirmation and about daring to win.
