Author talk - Ann-Helen Laestadius

Sara Kulturhus, Skellefteå

Theft is a story that required a lot of time and thought because it is based on difficult real events. People outside Sápmi have long been unaware of everything the Sami have been exposed to and the still existing Sami hatred, which is often directed at reindeer herders, has shocked.

Theft is a story about what desperation does to people. How difficult it is in small villages where everyone knows everyone. Where a single police patrol is to guard a gigantic area. Where conflicts over land and hunting characterize generations.
