The prolific Swedish novelist Inger Frimansson scores again with Island of the Naked Women (Pleasure Boat Studio, 978-1-929355-56-3), a somewhat bleak psychological picture of the relationships and tensions on a milk farm that EXPLODE IN MANSLAUGHTER and self-delusion.
Translated by Laura A. Wideburg, the story features Frimanssons customary unrelenting build-up and a few surprises. Sorry, no naked women; the title refers to a legend about a local island where adulterers once were severely punished.
