    For a swedish review look further downFallvatten is an apocalyptic novel which is a rare thing in Sweden The story takes place in the north of Sweden And the main character is Luleälven the Luleå River Suddenly a crack in the foundation of the dam makes it break and a wall of water is affecting people's lives in every way it could for the rest of the dayA crack has actually been discovered in the dam and was tightened and after reading this book I strongly suggest they look it over and investigate it further It isn't a pleasant surprise that befall the characters in the bookThe theme is liberation forces that are set free which the characters represent in various waysAdolf Pavval is discharging letting the stress wash out of him Vincent Laurin wants to stop the flow stop everything and just rest Lovisa Laurin is afraid her fetus is going to break loose and flow out They all symbolize the forces of nature the power of the river while at the same time they're a big contrast to it I had a problem locating where along the river every character was situated though which was important since the river acted differently depending on the distance from the broken dammSpoilersOne thing that surprised me was the ending Every reader has her own expectations and most of us are used to certain endings I would have liked all the characters to meet in the end At the same time Niemi made the book realistic this wayEnd of spoilersMikael Niemi portraits the river as good clear and clean the world's last clean drinkable surface water The language is beautiful and raw and the situations are nightmares The characters are very different from each other Some are good hearted and emphatic Others are self serving sadistic and have no comprehension of reality They sometimes feel very extreme when using the catastrophe in the worst possible way for their own needs something that no doubt would happen because there are people like that which are normally disguised by every day life and no one really knows who they would become in a situation like thatI was fascinated and amazed Disgusted and aghast Mikael Niemi sweeps around in the apocalyptic world hidden like a shadow in the role of author and I am there right beside himRecensionFallvatten är en svensk katastrofroman något som är ganska ovanligt men desto mer intressant Luleälvens dammar brister och en vägg av vatten forsar fram över Boden och Luleå Under loppet av en dag får man följa karaktärer i olika delar av Norrbotten i närheten av älvenEn spricka i Suorvadammen upptäcktes i verkligheten 1983 något som resulterade i ett läckage Dammen hade inte byggts på samma sätt idag vilket är oroväckandeBokens huvudperson är älven och temat är frigörelse krafter som släpps lös och förgör Karaktärerna representerar detta tema på olika sätt Adolf Pavval laddar ur låter Londons brus sakta sköljas ur honom Vincent Laurin vill stoppa livets flöde någonting som forsar fram i oändlighet utan pauser på grund av sömnlöshet Om han bara kunde bygga en damm inom sig Lovisa Laurin är orolig för att fostret inom henne ska lossna och rinna ut Karaktärerna symboliserar forsens frigörelse och makt Samtidigt är de en skarp kontrast till den Jag hade dock svårt att lokalisera var längs älven de olika karaktärerna befann sig vilket var viktigt eftersom älven betedde sig olika beroende på avståndet till den spruckna dammen Mikael Niemi skildrar älven med kärlek Den är renande och lever i symbios med människorna som är beroende av den för sitt välbefinnande Kaffe bryggs med den och den innehåller världens sista drickbara ytvatten Allt detta visar Niemis inställning till älven som plötsligt bryter sig lös från människornas villkor och förtär och förgör hastigt rusande mot Bottenviken Niemi beskriver mardrömssituationer på ett avskalat nästan naket sätt Språket är filosofiskt med många liknelser Mest av allt klingar det vackert norrländsktSpoilersSlutet kom som en överraskning Jag hade förväntat mig att karaktärerna skulle träffa varandra mötas upp och utbyta erfarenheter Samtidigt förtjänar Niemi beröm för att tillåta sig vara realistiskSlut på spoilersSociala roller är något som Niemi experimenterar friskt med Karaktärernas egenskaper består av hela skalan Vissa är godhjärtade och empatiska Andra är själviska sadistiska och saknar helt verklighetsuppfattning Vissa är så extrema att de använder katastrofen för egna syften vilket skulle kunna förekomma i en sådan situation Dessa människor gömmer sig normalt sett bakom vardagslivet och vid en katastrof frodas de mörka sidorna Man äcklas och förfäras samtidigt som man fascineras och förundras Niemi rör sig med författarens tacksamma täckmantel över stock och sten mellan tid och rum och mellan ångest sadism och hämnd Han är en skugga som insuper allt i sin värld och jag befinner sig precis bredvid

    To be sincere I was expecting something a bit funnier As it soon turned out I couldn't find a thing to laugh about in this book the best I could do was an ugly sneer every now and then because Niemi is sure and clear and without regrets with his ideas and views on human behaviour and the idea that this society we've built up with blood and tears and fear could crumble any minute leaving us as wild and capable as we happen to be right where we have put ourselves into In this book there's this huge flood masses of waters suddenly break free and rush through human habitats through walls of stone and wood and bones and it is not bad just what water can be expected to do once free again There were many characters in this book all of them just as important or unimportant as the others trying to get through the best they could with whatever they've got be it traits of personalities vehicles luck or persistence All the characters were extremely interesting and true to themselves they were stripped bare of judgement of other people and their expectations as nothing was the way it was supposed to be safe and tame Even though what surfaced was mostly very ugly and unlikeable or maybe that is exactly why I instantly got interested and agreeable and willing to know how was it all going to play out Well played What I especially enjoyed were the controversial attitudes the characters harbored and how insolent and arrogant and strong they turned out to be Some of them hanged on to their lives as that was exactly what was on the stake others also had their own little pack of a family or friends that mattered and nobody else much Everybody had to fight to preserve what they considered important and what was important was suddenly very clear I think this book serves as an effective reminder of what it means to survive and how badly most people are prepared seeing the lives of most western people are relatively safe and sheltered until something goes terribly wrong

    This book is just gross nearly every character is a disgusting human being The story is simply boring because it's impossible to relate to understand or feel any sympathy for the vast majority of its characters I finished it because it was assigned reading for class otherwise I would have dropped it after 10 pages or so

  5. John Hatley John Hatley says:

    Highly unusual in my experience a disaster novel in Swedish The fate of a number of different people is described when several dams burst in northern Sweden Very well written with a high level of suspense right to the very end

  6. Anke Weckmann Anke Weckmann says:

    Gory descriptions of rape and injuries which are not something I enjoy in a book Not sure what the author was trying to tell me except that all humans are despicable and evil This book just wasn't for me

  7. Jenni Jenni says:

    A Scandinavian disaster novel that depicts a day in the northern Luleå river area as a hydroelectric dam breaks releasing a violent flood that advances during the course of the novel sweeping everything in its way The story is told from the viewpoint of some ten characters all of whom experience and try to survive the flood in different ways The release of a natural force illustrates various psychological releases experienced by the characters and the central idea of the novel seems to be to explore the ways in which human nature is revealed as the structures of society are stripped away

    Helt ok

  9. Karin Johansson Karin Johansson says:

    I didn't like this at all Far too dystopic with a lot of unpleasant people Did not finish

    Suspend your disbelief approach 'Fallvatten' as a catastrophy movie screenplay let your mind skip the niggling logistical and character improbabilities and you'll enjoy I found myself getting mildly hooked Niemi does a good job of describing the 'hammer of the waters' smashing through the Lule Älv basin not an easy task Most of the characters are also uirky and pleasantly unpredictable As a bonus you get lots of local detail on Northern life and cultureI understand Niemi likes to change genres of this novels I recently read his 'Mannen som Dog som en Lax' a goryprurient detective novelbut he always manages to bring in Northern sociopolitics for which respect to the man Translate this into English fast pleasePostscript I live in a developing country metropolis and I can tell you that Niemi's scene of the traffic chaos resulting from the half hearted evacuation of Luleå can be observed on our streets every weekday afternoon
