A beautifully written, revealing study that reveals a far-reaching struggle for power in one of the world's most elevated cultural circles
The Swedish Academy, responsible for the annual Nobel Prize in Literature, will come under fire on November 22, 2017. A Swedish newspaper publishes a study in which eighteen women claim to have been sexually abused by artistic director Jean-Claude Arnault, married to a prominent member of the Swedish Academy. The message causes a worldwide stir and has the consequence that no Nobel Prize for Literature will be awarded in 2018.
Already in 1996, the Swedish Academy receives a letter to warn members of Arnault. He is accused of harassing multiple women who exhibit in the cultural center that is operated by him and his wife, and is subsidized by the Academy. Despite this warning, no action is taken. Twenty-one years later, journalist Matilda Gustavsson breaks this silence. With access to important witnesses and initiates, she delves into the mysterious and closed stronghold, where she encounters sexual abuse, intimidation and corruption.
