Malte Persson / Sweden

Malte Persson (born 1976) is a Swedish author. His first book Livet på den här planeten „Life on this planet“, a novel, was published in 2002. His subsequent two books are collections of poetry, Apolloprojektet „The Apollo Project“ (2004) and Dikter „Poems“ (2007). In 2008 “Edelcrantz förbindelser” was published, a historical novel set in the 18th and 19th centuries and focusing on the life of Abraham Niclas Edelcrantz. “Underjorden”, a sequence of sonnets on the Stockholm metro, was published in 2011.

As a critic, he writes for the daily newspaper “Expressen”. On his weblog Errata (2004-2010) Persson commented on the literary life in Sweden. „Errata“ used to be most well-known not for Persson’s articles, but for the debates being initiated and conducted among its readers in the commentary field.
