It´s Sweden´s Day # 6

I promised to show you how small the houses of Broby regional museum were. Here you can see a glimpse of my son´s legs.

And another modest living room.

 

Not Sweden, but a bestseller list which nearly gave me a heart attack yesterday: “Anna Märklin”, my Danish debut, is # 39 on the ebook list – in the company of Lotte and Søren Hammer´s latest thriller.

  1. Dorte – First, congratulations! I am really happy for you! :-) And thanks for the ‘photos. It is hard to believe how small those houses are. I love the warm feel of the furniture in that living room. It looks homey to me.

  2. Dorte H says:

    Thank you, Margot. It was a complete surprise – I would never have checked the bestseller list if “Saxo Selvudgiver” had not pointed out my debut was on it.

    And the houses are irresistible :)

  3. Glad tohear you are on the bestseller list! I bet that readers in Scandinavians find the British quaint but cute!

  4. Petty Witter says:

    Well done on another great achievement.

  5. Kelly says:

    My goodness! I had no idea the house was THAT tiny!

    Congratulations on working your way up that list. :)

  6. Congratulations on your ebook ranking! That’s fantastic!
    And thanks for sharing these lovely pictures. :) I always enjoy my road trips with you!

    Harvee: well, this novel is Scandinavian, and I don´t quite know what they think about it yet. I have received one (excellent) review plus praise from a reader friend.

    Tracy: thank you.

    Kelly: thank you. Well, the picture (or perspective) cheats a bit, but they are not for modern people.

    Elizabeth: thank you. It is not only fantastic, but totally incredible.

  8. Joanne says:

    Congratulations. That’s some achievement; well-deserved. :)
    And that place is a weeny thing and warmly cute.

  9. Dorte H says:

    Thank you, Joanne.

  10. I think the house would be just my size. I’m super short.

    Congrats on your book sales!

  11. Dorte H says:

    Clarissa: thanks.
    And I´m also super short – don´t know how I happened to produce such a tall son – his father must have been involved somehow :D

  12. Beth F says:

    Always love to see these kind of photos, a glimpse into our former lives and past. Thanks so much for sharing them. Scandinavia does not seem so far away when I look at these photos! And congratulations on the bestseller list. I will have to check out your title when I get my kindle!! Is it available in English Dorthe?

  15. Dorte H says:

    Amanda: a bit of nostalgia is not so bad, is it? :)

    No, this book is not out in English yet, but I began translating it the other day. 3000 words – 80,000 to go ;)
