Stig Dagerman (1923-1954) was the literary wunderkind of his generation in Sweden. Surpassed in Swedish literature perhaps only by August Strindberg in terms of his work's compressed intensity, Dagerman's remarkable literary output came to an abrupt end when he committed suicide at the age of thirty-one.
