The Falafel Girls

Christina Wahldén

Hawa lives in one of Sweden’s so-called problem areas. Now she’s opened her own detective agency and soon gets her first mission: she must hide her classmate, Halima, who risks being forcibly married to her cousin, fifteen years her elder.

Christina Wahldén never shies away from difficult and challenging subjects. Here, she’s written about children who live in some of Sweden’s poorest districts. But despite the serious subject, is also a feel-good story.
