The Swedish Translation of Finding Atlantis

Finding Atlantis - the story of Olof Rudbeck and his search for Atlantis - was translated into Swedish in 2006 (Drömmen om Atlantis, hardback by Fahrenheit, paperback Månpocket). The translator, Frederik Sjögren, did an outstanding job. He has previously translated Bill Bryson, Mark Kulansky, and Ian McEwan, and has just published a translation of Frank Sch��tzing's The Swarm, film rights of which were purchased by Uma Thurman.
