Quiet Days in the Arctic is a very personal reflection of a privileged double life, where the author commutes between two realities a world at home in urbanized Sweden and a high Arctic dream world in Greenland.

In Northeast Greenland there is still a possibility to experience the feeling to be a king with all the power to rule both yourself and, if you wish, a chunk of land limited only by your own imagination. A land where you yourself and nobody else determines when and how things should be done; in conflict with no-one. Every time the author goes there for a few months, he leaves behind the scheduled routines of everyday life, knowing fully well that it is always possible to return. But only when he decides to.

The photographs are both of animals and scenery. They are utterly spectacular. The author has published about ten books, mostly taken in Greenland or similar terrain. This is his second book, and he appears to be still active.
