Laura Lindstedt’s novel Scissors is a bold description of contemporary adoptive motherhood and the fear of failure as a parent. It manifests both a great command of language and structure and a skillful ability to manipulate plot. Scissors was shortlisted for the Finlandia Prize in 2007.

“She was a writer before she ever wrote her first novel.” –  Keskisuomalainen

Lindstedt’s second novel Oneiron (Teos 2015) is a work of speculative fiction that takes place in the mysterious moments that follow one’s death.
