This startling work was adapted and translated by Jens Svane Boutrup from the 1981 bestselling semi-autobiographical book by the acclaimed French Swedish novelist Jan Guillou.

EVIL is a window onto the abusive and oppressive world of institutionalised bullying.

The protagonist, Erik, has been hardened by an abusive step-father. He becomes a leader of a teenage gang and a master of petty crime. As the situation deteriorates he is sent, as a last resort to boarding school.

Considered an elite establishment, the truth is that it is run by a sadistic older pupil’s council and he soon becomes the target of their relentless bullying while the teachers look away.
