Recommends it for: Astrid Lindgren fans
This is my very favourite book of all time. It's not the most well-known book by Astrid Lindgren, but it has all the essential qualities of her fiction - the idyllic surroundings and descriptions of a happy childhood. I think I was about 9 when I first read it and I've read it about once a year ever since. It's about a teenage boy who in the English version is apparently called Bill Bergson (sorry, I haven't read it in English), but whose name in the original is Kalle Blomkvist. He is very inter...more
I made an effort to read this (had to Inter-Library Loan it) because Stieg Larsson's books include references to it. Specifically, to the main character, which in the Swedish books is Kalle Blomquist, but in the English translations is Bill Bergson.

This is the first of three or so books in the series, and it's a pretty good little kids detective story. Kids solve the case of a jewel heist while playing in their small town. A quaint 50's feel, and some charming quirks in the translation.
I just re-read this after many years. Though I couldn't quite get the same feeling of participating that I got when I was about the same age as the main characters it was a delightful read! The Kalle Blomqvist series is my absolute favourite by Astrid Lindgren. They are refreshingly innocent and bring out the adventurously curious child in me.
Once I pledged a boy to write the fourth episode of Kalle Blomquist for him as wedding present.
Läser just nu en kurs om barn och ungdomsdeckare och spänningslitteratur och Mästerdetektiven Blomkvist anses ju som the "Big Bang" inom området så den var först ut. Väldigt fin bok med framförallt många roliga citat! Själva intrigen i boken är inte speciellt spännande, det jag gillade mest är dialogerna och den vänliga men spännande "kriget" med de Röda rosorna, som är så himla fint beskrivet. Det är det vardagliga och barnens umgängeskrets och vardag som Astrid Lindgren är så bra på att beskri...more
Kalle Blomkvisti raamatud kuuluvad mu ühtede lemmiklasteraamatute hulka. Mind hämmastab, kui väheste sõnadega õnnestub luua kujutluspilt:

"Sel ööl ärkas Kalle sellest, et sääsk hammustas ta nägu."

Rohkem polegi vaja.

Kaks lemmikhetke raamatust:

Aga nimese kohta võib päris palju teada saada ka üksnes selle järgi, mida ta rauakauplusest ostab. Kui ta ostab elektritriikraua, mõtles Kalle, siis on ta koduarmastaja inimene, aga kui ta oskab tõukekelgu - jah, kui ta peaks ostma tõukekelgu, siis pole ta k...more
Kalle löst für sein Leben gerne Fälle wie Sherlock Holmes und Hercule Poirot. Am liebsten wäre er, wie sie, ein Detektiv. Doch er lebt in Kleinköping, einem Ort, der nicht langweiliger sein könnte.
Doch eines Tages ändert sich das. Denn nun finden tatsächlich Verbrechen in dem Ort statt. Im ersten Fall findet ein Juwelendiebstahl statt, im zweiten geschieht tatsächlich ein Mord und im dritten Fall wird ein Mensch entführt. Eine große Herausforderung für den Meisterdetektiv Kalle, der sich...more
Maybe even a 4.5/5.

I wanted to read this because of the allusions in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and also because I was really disappointed with Pippi Longstocking when I reread it a couple of years ago. It is definitely a book of a different era where children are utterly unsupervised (i.e. one storyline involved planning duels/physical fights for fun with other kids in town) but for some reason it just worked for me in this book. The jewel heist storyline was exciting in the way that Nanc...more
This was a story about a young boy detective in Sweden, and once again I found that reading Lindgren was delightful - there's really no better word for it. I read & absolutely loved "Ronya Robber's Daughter" a few months ago, and this one was very good, too. Upon opening my book, I was happy to discover that this volume in my hands was actually an anthology of three Kalle Blomquist books - that means I've got more to read in the future!
I've read this book countless times. It's one of the best of the best, and all of Lindgren's books are outstanding (as everyone knows, so it doesn't really need saying).

Kalle Blomquist however, was always one of my favourites. Oh, I can almost feel the sun on my face and the grass under my feet just thinking about this book, such a warm, happy summer feeling it gave me! I can still quote whole passages! Come to think of it, this was likely the very first book I was fannish about, imagining myse...more
One of my all-time favorite books. I love the mystery, the writing style, the character development. I recommend this book, and any other Astrid Lindgren books that I've ever read, to anyone who's interested, young and old.
I read this already years ago, but since I couldn't remember a bit about it I decided to re-read it. This is an absolutely lovely detective story for children, maybe not that surprising or innovative considering plot, but charming in narrative and characters. 3.5 stars
Naprosto úžasná knížka z dob mého mládí. Úplně jsem zapomněla, jak skvěle Astrid píše! :)
