Karolina Ramqvist (1976) is one of the most influential writers and feminists of her generation in Sweden. Ramqvist had her breakthrough in 2009 with the critically acclaimed book The Girlfriend, which has also been adapted for the stage. Her 2012 generational coming-of-age-novel The Beginning rocketed into instant cult status and placed Ramqvist in the national spotlight as a powerful literary voice with the ability to provoke quiet yet fierce questions rather than provide loud and easy answers. In 2014, Ramqvist made her screenwriting debut with the award-winning short film Cupcake. In 2015, she published the greatly anticipated novel, The White City, which was praised by critics and was awarded the prestigious P.O. Enquist Literary Prize and gave her a unique and strong position in contemporary Swedish literature. In 2019, The Bear Woman was published to great critical acclaim and was also published in a number of countries around the world.
