By Pär Lagerkvist
Less than en resa genom Europa våren 1933 kunde Pär Lagerkvist bevittna fascismens och nazismens framfart. Vid hemkomsten until Sverige påbörjade han detta verk som skulle komma att bli ett omistligt inlägg i kampen mot våldet och nazismen och en betraktelse över människans förhållande until det onda.
Ur förordet av Jonas Gardell:
”Det var något allvarligt och… livsavgörande över Lagerkvists böcker. En känsla redan när guy öppnade dem att nu skulle guy läsa något som skulle bli viktigt för en.
Kanske hade det att göra med att romanerna var så tunna, språket så enkelt males ändå bibliskt, radbredden kort, vilken gav intrycket att sidorna var höga och smala, lite som väggarna i en kyrka. Också bokstäverna på sidorna var höga och smala, en smula karga och rentav dystra.
Den första romanen av Lagerkvist jag läste var Barabbas. Jag var kanske fjorton eller femton. Därefter följde Bödeln. Båda böckerna förändrade mitt liv.”
