Peter er flyttet hjem for at støtte sin lokale ishockeyklub efter at have lykkedes med en karriere som professionel ishockeyspiller. Mira står over for valget mellem en advokatkarriere og et stille og roligt liv som hustru og mor. De bor i samme by. Bjørneby. Bjørneby er første roman ud af to om en lille by med store drømme. Det er en fortælling om femtenårige pigers ubrydelige venskaber og syttenårige drenge, der spiller ishockey med byens stolthed på skuldrene. Om sport, lidenskab, familiens bånd og holdånd, men også om hvor let et helt samfund kan vende det blinde øje til, når katastrofen slår ned, og hvor langt vi er villige til at gå for vores børn i kærlighedens navn. Bjørneby er den første roman ud af to om en lille by med store drømme. "Et totalt knockout. Fra halvvejs i bogen og frem til sidste side læste jeg med tårer i øjnene. Jeg på skift grinte, blev ramt og berørt, frustreret og vred. Det er fortalt så overbevisende." - Bloggen Just här - just nu Bind 2 udkommer oktober 2018.
Årets mest uregerlige roman er skrevet af forfatteren til En mand der hedder Ove. Folk med angst er en roman om et gidseldrama, der stikker af og når uden for rækkevidde af al sund fornuft. Gidseltagningen finder sted under et åbent hus-arrangement, hvor en mislykket bankrøver låser sig inde sammen med en overentusiastisk ejendomsmægler, to bitre IKEA-afhængige, en gravid, en selvmorderisk multimillionær og en irriterende kanin. Det ender med, at gidseltageren giver op og sætter alle fri, men da politiet stormer lejligheden, er den … tom. Alle vidnerne fortæller efterfølgende deres version af begivenhederne i en række af usammenhængende vidneforklaringer, der rejser mange spørgsmål, og en klassisk kriminalgåde tager form: Hvordan lykkedes det den mislykkede bankrøver at undslippe fra lejligheden? Hvorfor er alle så vrede? Og: Hvad er der GALT med folk nu til dags?

Medrivende og voldsom afslutning på trilogien om Bjørneby.Dette er en lille historie om de store spørgsmål: Hvad er en familie? Hvad er en ishockeyklub? Hvad er et samfund? Og hvad er vi villige til at ofre for at beskytte dem? Der er gået to år siden alt det, som ingen har lyst til at tænke på, skete. Alle har prøvet at komme videre, men der er noget ved dette sted, som gør det umuligt. Denne gang starter det med en storm, men ender med et opgør. Nogen, som har været væk længe, er på vej hjem. Nogen bliver begravet. Nogen forelsker sig, nogen drømmer om NHL, og nogen drømmer om hævn. Nogen sover ryg mod ryg med deres bedste ven, nogen forsøger at redde deres ægteskab, og nogen forsøger at redde deres børn. Nogen hader, nogen slås, nogen tager et skydevåben og går ned moden ishockeyhal. Det er ikke alt, hvad byen har kæmpet for, der kommer til at overleve, det er ikke alle, som er elsket, der kommer til at blive gamle. Så hvad er en familie? En ishockeyklub? Et samfund? Det er summen af vores valg. Hvad er vi villige til at ofre for at beskytte dem? Alt. Simpelthen alt.
**Longlisted for the Baillie Gifford Prize 2023**A NEW YORK TIMES, DAILY TELEGRAPH, ECONOMIST, MAIL ON SUNDAY and GUARDIAN BOOK OF THE YEAR 2022From the prize-winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies, The Song of the Cell tells the vivid, thrilling and suspenseful story of the fundamental unit of life.In the late 1600s, a distinguished English polymath, Robert Hooke, and an eccentric Dutch cloth-merchant, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, look down their hand-made microscopes. What they see introduces a radical concept that alters both biology and medicine forever. It is the fact that complex living organisms are assemblages of tiny, self-contained, self-regulating units. Our organs, our physiology, our selves, are built from these compartments. Hooke christens them 'cells'.The discovery of cells announced the birth of a new kind of medicine. A hip fracture, a cardiac arrest, Alzheimer's, AIDS, lung cancer - all could be re-conceived as the results of cells, or a cellular ecosystem, functioning abnormally. And all could be treated by therapeutic manipulations of cells. This revolution in cell biology is still in progress: it represents one of the most significant advances in science and medicine.Both panoramic and intimate, this is Siddhartha Mukherjee's most spectacular book yet.
';New Dark Ageis among the most unsettling and illuminating books I've read about the Internet, which is to say that it is among the most unsettling and illuminating books I've read about contemporary life.'New YorkerAs the world around us increases in technological complexity, our understanding of it diminishes. Underlying this trend is a single idea: the belief that our existence is understandable through computation, and more data is enough to help us build a better world. In reality, we are lost in a sea of information, increasingly divided by fundamentalism, simplistic narratives, conspiracy theories, and post-factual politics. Meanwhile, those in power use our lack of understanding to further their own interests. Despite the apparent accessibility of information, we're living in a new Dark Age. From rogue financial systems to shopping algorithms, from artificial intelligence to state secrecy, we no longer understand how our world is governed or presented to us. The media is filled with unverifiable speculation, much of it generated by anonymous software, while companies dominate their employees through surveillance and the threat of automation. In his brilliant new work, leading artist and writer James Bridle surveys the history of art, technology, and information systems, and reveals the dark clouds that gather over our dreams of the digital sublime.
Shortlisted for the Financial Times Business Book of the Year Award'A masterclass in navigating, and even seeking out, the inevitable failures that pave the way to success . . . A must-read.' Angela Duckworth, author of GritForget 'fail fast, fail often'. This revolutionary book reveals how we get failure wrong - and how to get it right.We used to think of failure as a problem, to be avoided at all costs. Now, we're often told that failure is desirable - that we must 'fail fast, fail often'. The trouble is, neither approach distinguishes the good failures from the bad. As a result, we miss the opportunity to fail well.Here, Amy Edmondson - the world's most influential organisational psychologist - reveals how we get failure wrong, and how to get it right. She draws on a lifetime's research into the science of 'psychological safety' to show that the most successful cultures are those in which you can fail openly, without your mistakes being held against you. She introduces the three archetypes of failure - simple, complex and intelligent - and explains how to harness the revolutionary potential of the good ones (and eliminate the bad).And she tells vivid stories ranging from the history of open heart surgery to the Columbia Space Shuttle disaster, all to ask a simple, provocative question: What if it is only by learning to fail that we can hope to truly succeed?_'Great clarity and insight . . . Right Kind of Wrong will inspire you to do your boldest work.' Ed Catmull, co-founder of Pixar and author of Creativity, Inc.'No skill is more important than learning from failure - and no one on earth knows more about it than Amy Edmondson.' Adam Grant, author of Think Again

When it comes to the climate, we don't need more marketing or anxiety. We need established facts and a plan for collective action.The climate is the fundamental issue of our time, yet it seems we can barely agree on what is really going on, let alone what needs to be done. We urgently need facts, not opinions. Insights, not statistics.The Carbon Almanac is a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration between hundreds of writers, researchers, thinkers, and leaders that focuses on what we know, what has come before, and what might happen next. With thousands of data points, articles and charts explaining carbon's impact on everything in our society, from our the economy to extreme weather events, it is the definitive source for facts and the basis for a global movement to fight climate change. This book isn't what the oil companies, marketers, activists, or politicians want you to believe. This is what's really happening, right now. Our planet is in trouble, and no one concerned group, corporation, country, or hemisphere canaddress this on its own. We are in this together. And it's not too late for concerted, collective action for change.
