    Patrick,

    Re your comment below:

    "I wonder how closely the English translations follow the Swedish texts? Certainly the social commentary is clearly in the English but 'froth-mouthed ranting?' Which book would you classify like that?"

    A cop I used to work with in Berkeley, who was born and raised in Sweden, read them in both languages. He said the English translations were very faithful to the original.

    That's a second-hand opinion, but I pass it on to you, FWIW.
