Description

* NOW A NETFLIX FILM * AN NPR BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR *

A spellbinding Swedish novel that follows a young indigenous woman as she struggles to defend her family's reindeer herd and culture amidst xenophobia, climate change, and a devious hunter whose targeted kills are considered mere theft in the eyes of the law.

On a winter day north of the Arctic Circle, nine-year-old Elsa—daughter of Sámi reindeer herders—sees a man brutally kill her beloved reindeer calf and threaten her into silence. When her father takes her to report the crime, local police tell them that there is nothing they can do about these "stolen" animals. Killings like these are classified as theft in the reports that continue to pile up, uninvestigated. But reindeer are not just the Sámi's livelihood, they also hold spiritual significance; attacking a reindeer is an attack on the culture itself.

Ten years later, hatred and threats against the Sámi keep escalating, and more reindeer are tortured and killed in Elsa's community. Finally, she's had enough and decides to push back on the apathetic police force. The hunter comes after her this time, leading to a catastrophic final confrontation.

Based on real events, Ann-Helén Laestadius's award-winning novel Stolen is part coming-of-age story, part love song to a disappearing natural world, and part electrifying countdown to a dramatic resolution—a searing depiction of a forgotten part of Sweden.

        November 28, 2022
        In Laestadius’s nuanced English-language debut, the fragile peace of a Sámi tribal community in Arctic Lappland is shattered when a poacher begins to prey on their sacred reindeer herd. Nine-year-old Elsa witnesses a poaching in 2008, and after the police refuse to investigate, she keeps quiet about it in order to protect her family. Eventually, the Sámi begin to push back against escalating threats of violence from neighbors if they refuse to keep silent about the poaching, and amid the tension and danger Elsa loses an uncle to suicide and her brother becomes estranged from the family. At the heart of the tribe’s plight is that they regard the poaching as murder, while the unsympathetic authorities see it as simple theft. As Elsa grows up under the shadow of her peoples’ continued exploitation by the poachers, she dreams of revenge against them, but is unprepared for the fallout in 2018 after a poacher is found dead. Though the pace can be slack, the sense of place and character development make for an affecting portrait of the Sámi’s disenfranchisement. It’s a solid story of a family torn apart by cultural tensions.
