Vem dödade bambi?
Everything is inherited.
It’s been twenty years since a group of highschoolers shook the idyllic serenity of their villa town with the brutal deed. By now, everything is forgotten and forgiven – after all, they were good kids from good families.
Now, two of the perpetrators want to make a film about what happened.
A sleeping monster awakes.
The novel Who killed bambi? by Monika Fagerholm describes a brutal act of violence in a small town. The perpetrators get away with their violent actions because of their background and their status in society, Who killed bambi? is a story about how everything is inherited. Especially privileges.
The novel was awarded the Nordic Council Literature Prize in the year 2020.
