Glasveranda by the Lake
Nora flees abruptly from her apartment in Stockholm when it turns out
that her controlling boyfriend Jonas has been unfaithful. To get some
distance to everything, she takes the train to idyllic Leksand and her
friend Vega who offers comfort. Nora rents a small log cabin with a
glass veranda and lake view, and she promises herself never to fall for a
man again, but then she meets Viktor – the charming neighbor who seems
to be hiding a secret.
Meanwhile, the washed up author Niklas is trying to take advantage of an old man called Torsten, who has a failing memory, but a fantastic ability to tell stories and captivate an audience, something Niklas is lacking. Niklas bribes the old man with coffee and cookies to get him to start talking, and Torsten begins to reveal the story of his life, which includes a tragic accident that turns out to be linked to Nora.
The series is now completed with three books.

Saga Falls series
The series could be described as a mix between Lord of the Rings and Narnia – but with a unique concept, featuring a battle between chess pieces, and a map that expands and grows bigger for every adventure. Hanna’s writing also displays a certain Scandinavian bittersweet warmth, reminiscent of Astrid Lindgren. Every book in the series is an adventure of one of the six different chess pieces.
The storyline of the Saga Falls is similar to modern day videogames and it captures both reluctant readers as well as bookworms.
The antagonist in the series is Styx and the protagonist The Snowy Owl. The Snowy Owl is not there in person, and the resistance against Styx must be fought by the siblings Sofia and Leo from our world which is called Mirroria in the books.
The seventh and the last book takes place before the other ones, and
sets the stage for the whole series, and here you finally get to know
the mysterious character Snowy Owl. Many readers have expressed that
after finishing the seventh book, they want to start reading the Saga
Falls series all over again.
