Found a Swedish novel in a used bookstore the other day.  Books in Swedish are a rare commodity in NM so I scooped it up without bothering to look further.  Got it home, sit down, and discover it's about some Swedish holy roller.

DAMN!

Jumping in the car for a 400 mile (643 kilometers) jaunt to Ikea doesn't appeal.

Tell you what, YOU steal the books and I'll buy 'em from you.
