Late one winter night, three barbaric foreigners enter Solberga parsonage and kill the old, well-to-do priest and his family and servants, and then haul away their valuables. Only one member of the household manages to hide herself and escape the massacre--Elsalill, a young orphan girl who had been adopted by the priest and his family. So it falls to this girl, and to the ghost of her adopted sister, to see that justice is carried out.

The Treasure, like The Lowenskold Ring, is one of Lagerlof’s...more

كاتبة سويدية .. رغم عجزها استطاعت الحصول على جائزة نوبل ، و لعل اشهر اعمالها نلز عقلة الاصبع ، و القصة خيالية و لكنها .. لا تحمل نفس عنوانها ، و تحمل الكثير من الخيال عن الاموات الذين يرشدون الاحياء لقاتليهم و كان الموتى يعرفون المستقبل ،

و ان تتجاوز الحد في اضفاء مشاعر تصل بين الاموات و الاحياء ، و قطرات دم .. و حوارات اقرب لاناس طبيعيين و تستطيع الفتاة زاليل ان تلمس يد زميلتها الميتة و هذا غريب .. و خيالي .. و لكني ارى انه على كل حال وجهة نظر الكاتبة ..

و لكن لكي يتحقق العدل .. هل...more
يتضح لي جليا إن ( الترجمة ) شوهت الرواية بالقفز بين الأحداث والتعجل الواضح في السرد .. وهذا ما لاحظته في ( إزابيل ) رواية أخرى ضمن نفس السلسلة هذه

إقتنيت إثنتين من السلسلة ولا أنوي إقتناء البقية

كاتبة رائعة للغاية وذات خيال جميل
O Tesouro é o primeiro livro da autora Selma Lagerlof que leio. Já tinha nos meus planos ler esta escritora este ano, mas o livro escolhido não era este, mas sim o famoso “A Maravilhosa Viagem de Nils Holgersson Através da Suécia”. No entanto, mudei de ideias e decidi ler este pequeno conto.
Este livro é um misto de mistério e fantasia, mas ao mesmo tempo parece um conto tradicional da Suécia, pois tem alguns dizeres e saberes do povo sueco. Gostei do lado de mistério que a autora deu ao livro,...more

Comprei este livro na feira do livro que houve na Fundação António Cupertino Miranda, no Porto, durante o mês de Janeiro. A autora foi-me recomendada por um amigo, o que me fez comprar “A Maravilhosa Viagem de Nils Holgersson Através da Suécia” e este, cuja sinopse me pareceu interessante, pois mencionava que se enquadrava dentro do género fantástico.
Apesar de ser um livro pequeno, que numa horita se chega ao fim, não foi um livro que me prendesse. É-nos apresentado um ambiente sobrenatural, ond...more

Ice, cold winds and ghosts are the background of this wonderful bloody dark story.
I was a bit disappointed.
The tale is brief and to the point. The writing is reminiscent of the Bible or European folk-tales, with its stock descriptions, frugality, and use of repetition. The story thus acquires a gravitas which belies its fantastic nature. I wouldn't have been surprised to have read this in the brothers Grimm. It may not be particularly original or "modern," but I found it quite compelling, a fable whose moral is perhaps more elusive than it seems.
Spännande liten spökhistoria :-)

Intriguing and eerie, it is a consistent and solid ghost story that made me have romantic thoughts about old timey superstitions. Great classic ingredients such as murder, guilt and inner conflict topped of with the paranormal and framed with a great dramatic structure. It's neat and simple, short and sweet, and for that reason it might not be the most memorable of plots.
In the short, but not so sweet, novel, the reality of death and its ability to haunt comes alive and the forever ongoing battle between good and evil is portrayed in almost every scene. Just when we think darkness will extinguish the light, nature reconfirms that goodness will prevail and crush its always hovering opponent every time.
Joseph Sverker
Intressant och läsvärd för sin mytiska och sägenaktiga stil. Men det gammeldagsa språket stör något och jag tycker mig inte finna Lagerlöfs annars så mustiga språk. Jag saknar även den fantastiska gestaltningen och människokännedomen som återfinns i bl.a. Kejsaren av Portugallie
Some absolutely stunning images in this story. The murdered girl becomes a grey shadow dogging her murderer, whispering in his ear, leaving bloody footprints? So eerily lovely. This book is a sleeper, it crept up on me, and I was entranced.

Exciting story of psychological terror set in 16th century Sweden where the reader is never sure what is happening is in the characters' heads or if it is real.
Titus Hjelm
Listened to this as an audiobook, read by a Swedish guy with the usual singing accent. Couldn't quite enjoy whatever it was that has made this a classic.

Zajímavé. Láska, zrada, obětování se pro lásku a trocha tajemna. Dobře se četa a byla krátká, ale i přes to byl příbeh hodně dobrý.

A fantastical, dark take on a common fairytale.
