    I must admit that I like Guillou in general before I start writing my review.This book has not changed my mind at all. On the contrary. This was a book that cought me from page one. Not only the story, but also the ease it seems to be written with. The author uses every day language, no decorations, he just tells what he has to tell.The story of a boy that is severely beaten by his father, and how he survives that. Simultaneously that same boy is part of a group that terrorizes others at school and commits criminal acts.When all comes out, he is sent to bording school. He looks forward to it, being away from his father and the never stopping beatings. Until he finds, that boarding school is even worse: there's not only one, but there is a whole counsil that tries to break him.How he fights the system, stands up to it and faces the consequenses, it cought me. Despite what happened in the past and what he is going through now, he finds a friend there. They have long conversations, stand up for each other and almost untill the end of their time at boarding school they are together. He takes revenge for what the board did to his friend, but in a way that noone can pin it down to him. Only on his last day he admits his deeds, just before walking out for good.But the best scene I found the final confrontation with his father. When coming home, his father thought to go on with him in the old way. He forgot, or didn't want to admit, that his son grew up, got stronger. So, when they stood face to face, Erik only talked. Talked about what he was going to do. And his father already broke, not used to any comment, any reply and out of fear. Whether the fight really occurred, the book doesn't describe. For me this was a happy ending enough. No need to go on any futher, since the point was made: he won, finally.

    I read this as part of a project we're about to write at uni. The project is about evil, so this book is certainly fitting. When I bought it, the sales person told me "That's a really good book". And he was right. It's brilliant. The danish translation is a bit icky at times, but the story itself is incredible. And it's a violent book, at the centre of it you find abuse and degradation. But it's also intelligent. Something that comes through in Erik's internal dialogue, and in the conversations between Pierre and Erik. It's a book that explores its own themes, and does it really well. There's a lot to analyse, in this case I'll go for the title. What does "Evil" refer to? Erik? His dad? His school tormentors? His mother and the teachers who turn a blind eye? I believe it's all of them. This is not a book about The Evil, it's about the many different kinds we encounter every day.And then it asks the age-old question of whether violence is ever justified as a means of fighting back. This book never really answers that question, all it tells us is that, sometimes, violence works. It mirrors a lot of my own thoughts and observations too. Most notably how anxiety (angst) and fear work much better as defence or offence tools than any pain you could ever inflict on someone. Once read, it's not a book or a story that's likely to leave you. It forces you to think, to consider where you stand and to form an opinion of the things that take place. And as a result; to examine yourself. What's the right thing to do? What would YOU have done?It has much the same effect the movie does, it shocks, it horrifies and it stays with you forever.

    My mothertongue being Swedish I've heard a lot of hype about this book over the years. And by the creed 'no one is a prophet in his own hometown' I never took it seriously, despite not even being of the same nationality as the author. But I've now read it for school and it far exceeded my expectations. It's a bit teenage-angsty but if you, like me, delight in reading about suffering and those who power through it you will love this book. The main character is portrayed in a way that I at times was taken aback by. The way he knew himself to be steered by his emotions and knew he couldn't avoid it. That acceptance he had of his own emotional self. It felt refreshing. I don't think a woman could have written a book like this. Or, rather, I don't think a woman would have written this book like this. And well, truth is, no one could have written this book but Guillou. He doesn't advertise it anywhere on, or in, the book but it is a autobiografi, which is both horrifying and amazing. And it makes me wonder how much of it is true. Even as fiction it is gruesome and it makes me ache to think that Guillou has lived through this. Perhaps there is a reason for the macho, 'you can't do shit to me' way he carries himself (that same confidence that has made me sort of take a dislike to him whenever I see him on the telly...). Definitely a book worth reading.

    Jag är lite för trött för att för tillfället orka skriva en ordentlig recension, men jag kan i varje fall utan tvekan säga att Ondskan är en av de mest gripande böcker jag läst. Kanske den bästa bok jag läst (vilket tyvärr inte säger mycket med tanke på mitt bibliotek). I Ondskan får jag fördjupa mig i filosofiska frågor och frågor om människans moral och analyser om det sociala samspelet i olika sammanhang, allt med ett stadigt flöde av adrenalin i blodet. Verket är dessutom stundom väldigt vackert förmulerat samtidigt som språket oftast är högst vardagligt och förmodligen i utvalda stycken och till viss del avspeglar det som användes på 50-talet. Rekommenderas för alla.

    You're evil incarnate, and you need to be destroyed.Erik Ponti just wants to leave all the violence and criminality behind. He wants to get away from his sadistic devil of a father, his dreary school, and the so-called friends who let him down. When he is transferred to a new boarding school, Stjärnberg, he thinks it might just be the saving grace he has been waiting for. He can finally start over: nobody knows him on Stjärnberg. Instead of Erik the violent gang leader, he can be Erik, the quiet boy with the goofy haircut.Unfortunately, that's not what happens.Stjärnberg turns out to be a melting pot of violence and insanity. In Stjärnberg, it's up to the older students to educate their younger peers in proper behaviour, and the teachers are not allowed to interfere. They call it "comrade rearing". In actuality, the last year-students dominate the younger ones through methodical harassments and beatings. In Stjärnberg, the rules of the real world don’t apply.Erik doesn't fit into this world. At all. But, thanks to his indomitable personality and skills as a fighter, he is most certainly not helpless.What worked? So much! First of all: the prose. Jan Guillou doesn't care about proper grammar or pretentious formulations or shit like that. He writes honestly and fluently, sets the mood of every scene perfectly by choosing his words carefully and slowing down or speeding up the rhythm when it's needed. He is no doubt up there with Stephen King when it comes to good prose. I read this book in Swedish, the original language, but I'm aware that many of the readers on this site might have to read a copy in another language. All I can hope is that the translation holds up to the original. It's a shame to miss it.Second, the characters. There are some characters in this book that aren't nearly well-developed enough (which is mostly why I did not give it five stars), but those that are developed are wonderful. Erik is a manipulative, violent young man with issues as large as Australia. But he is also incredibly intelligent, vulnerable, and painfully sympathetic. He's the best fighter you will ever see, not because he's the biggest or strongest or fastest, but because he knows how to play his opponent. He knows how people work. He knows how to make them scared. And, as Erik himself states, fear is really much worse than pain. Over and over again, we see him use his amazing intellect to manipulate people into giving up before they ever realize it. It's often-times satisfying, sometimes frightening, but rarely unenjoyable.Pierre Tanguy, Erik's best friend, is another wonderful character. They're as different as night and day, but balance each other perfectly. I deeply enjoyed their friendship; the scenes where they interacted casually or worked together were some of my favourites, and without giving away too many spoilers, (view spoiler)[it was heart-wrenching to see the turn their relationship took (hide spoiler)].As far as the rest of the cast, including Erik's family, the students and teachers at Stjärnberg, and Marja, I will just say that some were terrible but at the same time immensely enoyable while others were unbearable to read about and some really should have been given more screen-time. No spoilers here!Additionally, this book has some of the best fight-scenes I've ever read. Yeah, Hunger Games and the rest of YA can suck it, because they've got nothing on Erik's formidable displays of violence. Jan Guillou does a fantastic job raising the tension before a fight, and you're never quite sure who or what is going to snap, or when. On the other side of the coin, the humor is spot on! Watching Erik "stick it to the man" is just as satisfying as his fights, especially considering his wit is as sharp as his knuckles. But that's not all; here's another area where Guillou's descriptions and word-choices really shine. He's got a very dry sense of humor which I loved! But what really makes this book one of the best is that it matters. For better or worse, we've all witnessed violence. Heck, this book is even based on Jan Guillou's own life! (By the way, that boy on the cover? A young Guillou!) Whether we love it or hate it, believe it needs to stop or think it's a means to an end, violence is a prominent part of our world. Ondskan doesn't try to sell us on one point of view or the other. Not really. It just tells it like it is, and lets you make your own decision. And that, to me, is what makes a great book.I really hope you will read this. I think everyone should. It's just one of those books, you know?

    Mi è stato prestato da un'amica di mia madre che, diciamo, non ha assolutamente i miei stessi gusti né in fatto di libri né in fatto di musica e cinema. Ero riluttante, devo ammetterlo: non conoscevo assolutamente l'autore, né la copertina e la trama mi comunicavano granchè. Ce l'ho avuto in casa per un po', campeggiante sul comodino, e gli sono passati avanti diversi libri. Poi qualche giorno fa mi sono convinta, l'ho iniziato e mi sono dovuta ricredere: le mie impressioni iniziali non potevano essere così sbagliate. Devo dire, però, che è stata una fortuna che io abbia atteso per iniziarlo (ecco magari io ho atteso troppo!), perché non si tratta di un libro che si può leggere in qualunque periodo, non quando si ha bisogno di qualcosa di poco impegnativo o quando si ha voglia di distrarsi, per intenderci.E' una bellissima storia, molto ben narrata, nonostante in alcuni punti io sia stata costretta a lasciar perdere di leggere per qualche minuto considerate la spaventosa minuziosità e l'agghiacciante freddezza con le quali l'autore descrive i dettagli delle violenze subìte e agite. Un libro da leggere se se ne ha l'occasione.

    "Το πνεύμα νικάει πάντοτε τη βία, αλλά εγώ, πραγματικά, δεν ξέρω τι εννοείς με τις λέξεις "πνεύμα" και "βία" μερικές φορές." Γνωρίζοντας περίπου την υπόθεση του βιβλίου, καθώς είχα ακούσει πολλά από φίλους που είχαν δει την ταινία, φοβόμουν αρκετά να το ξεκινήσω. Γενικά αποφεύγω τα βιβλία και τις ταινίες που περιέχουν βία απλά δεν είναι του γούστου μου! Ήδη όμως από τις πρώτες σελίδες κατάλαβα πως εδώ δεν είχα να κάνω με κάτι τέτοιο... Ο Έρικ είναι ένα παιδί κακοποιημένο από τον πατέρα του, που σε όλη του τη ζωή ο μόνος τρόπος που έχει μάθει να αντιμετωπίζει τους ανθρώπους και το περιβάλλον του είναι η βία. Η μόνη εξαίρεση και η μόνη ήρεμη παρουσία στη ζωή του, η μητέρα του, που αν και δεν είναι αρκετά δυναμική ώστε να τον σώσει από τον βίαιο πατέρα του, είναι εκείνη που προσφέρει μια πιθανή διέξοδο από τον κύκλο της βίας. Ουσιαστικά ακολουθούμε ένα παιδί σε μια προσπάθεια να αλλάξει την μοίρα του και να χαράξει μια διαφορετική πορεία καθώς προχωράει στο δρόμο προς την ενηλικίωση. Περιέχονται ορισμένες ωμές σκηνές που όμως είναι τόσο ωμές και ρεαλιστικές χρειάζεται για να περιγραψει καταστάσεις υπαρκτές που πολλοί επιλέγουν να αγνοούν από φόβο ή αδιαφορία.

    Evil and violence, rarely makes such a strong impression. Maybe it is because it was accompanied by wishes for peace and tolerance as well. Ondskan is a book about all of the above; it discusses domestic violence (a son beaten by the father) and violence as a way to power (the reality at the Swedish boys' boarding school, which is the main setting). The main character Erik has to cope with both, and find a way to win over these and over his oppressors with or without the use of violence himself. We, standing on the sidelines of this great circus, follows his fights, feels his pain, feels his losses, and learns from and enjoys the intelligent and hopeful discussions he has with his friend, who opens his eyes to a world where violence isn't the main component nor the strongest force. Guillou sends powerful messages through this captivating book, which is worth a read for its inspiring discussions alone.

    En svensk bok, det var länge sedan sist ... Egentligen är två saker pinsamma med denna bok: 1. Med tankte på hur kort den är är det pinsamt hur lång tid det tog att läsa den, och 2. Det är pinsamt att jag inte har läst den förrän nu. Men jag tyckte den var sjukt bra! Filmen hade jag sett innan och de är inte speciellt lika, i min åsikt är boken betydligt bättre (mest för att den är mer utförlig, vilket böcker brukar vara ...) Språket var ju lite sisådär ("dom" "dej" "mej" o.s.v., sådant som jag inte riktigt klarar av) och meningsuppbyggnaden var ju lite konstig ibland, men all in all en väldigt bra och läsvärd bok.

    Ondskan. En bok som vi läste i helklass i skolan. När jag fick den i min hand och slog upp första sidan ansåg jag att den inte var särskilt speciell. Det var inte mycket som lockade och skapade läsarlust. Men ju mer jag läste desto bättre blev den. Slutet har fått mest krut och det är där tyngd ligger. Det är kraftiga och stora ord som avslutar boken på ett värdigt sätt. Annars öppnar verket vyerna och man får lite andra tankebanor och perspektiv. Slutligen skulle jag inte tipsa någon om Ondskan. Det är dels den mest antifeministiska bok jag läst men förutom det var det inte riktigt min typ av bok, med andra ord för lite kärlek och ett trist språk.

    This was a very thrilling book to read, and as the titel states there is a lot of evil involved. The main character Erik is very intelligent, and it really show in his train of thought and dialogue with the other characters. The book questions a lot about evil. Is it okay to turn a blind eye like his mother and teachers did? Is it right to fight evil with evil? Overall I found this book to be thrilling and smart.

    This is by far one of the most chilling books I've ever read. It's more or less entirely autobiographical, about a bullying and physically abusive father, and the years the author/protagonist spent in an upperclass boardingschool where you end up at the bottom of the hierarchy if you don't fight your way up.

    This book simply changed my life. I was a youngster, had just found the passion for reading. This book was collecting dust in our bookshelf, so I decided to take a look.. Mainly 'cause of the catching yet simple title.I love the way Guillou writes, how he brings up the details and how he has put so much work in generating his auto-biographical story into this novel. Raw, yet touching.

    Spoilereita!Luin kirjan ruotsiksi, jotta voisin samalla kehittää kielitaitoani. Tästä huolimatta uppouduin kirjaan alusta loppuun, eli hyvin kirjoitettu. Erityisesti Erikin rinkitappelu oli jännittävämpää luettavaa kuin mitä olisin uskonut kirjoille olevan edes mahdollista.Puhtaasti viihdekirjana antaisin 5 tähteä. Sopivasti sekä minulle että ystävälleni tuli kirjasta mieleen Harry Potter. Lähinnä siksi, että päähenkilö saapuu oppilaitokseen, jossa eläminen on naurettavan vaarallista ja opettajilta ei saa apua. Ongelmat tosin ratkaistaan taikuuden sijasta väkivallalla. Kirjan sanoma tuntuukin sekavalta. Päähenkilö Erik pyrkii kirjan alussa irtautumaan väkivallasta ja varsinkin loppu tuntuu pyrkivän edistämään sanomaa, jonka mukaan väkivallan käyttö johtaa jatkuvaan kierteeseen. Mutta kaikki Erikin ongelmat ratkesivat hakkaamalla ihmisiä tai uhkailemalla heitä: häntä ei enää pakotettu rinkitappeluihin kun hän mursi toisen vastustajan nenän ja uhkasi toista käden murtamisella kunnes tämä luovutti, menetetty kanssaoppilaiden suosio palautui kun hän alkoi naamio päässä pahoinpitelemään hierarkiassa korkeammalla olevia oppilaita ja kodin perheväkivalta (oletettavasti) lopetettiin pieksemällä isä sairaalakuntoon. Marjankin hän sai tyttöystäväkseen, koska tämä vaikuttui Erikin valmiudesta hakata koulun rikkaita poikia. Ja rinkitappelun kuvaus tietenkin sai Erikin vaikuttamaan uskomattoman siistiltä kovikselta.Eli mukavalukuinen ja todella viihdyttävä kirja, mutta en sanoisi kovin älylliseksi. Kirjan viehätys perustuikin toistuvaan kaavaan, jossa ensin esitellään todella vihattava hahmo, jonka myöhempi pahoinpitely tai nöyryytys tuottaa tyydytystä. Kirja muistutti itse asiassa supersankaritarinoita: päähenkilö on sekä urheilullisesti, akateemisesti että tappelutaitojensa suhteen erityislaatuinen ja vastustajat ovat vain puhtaasti pahoja. Ja minä tietenkin rakastan supersankaritarinoita, eli 4 tähteä!PS: vinkki pahisoppilaille: rehtori oli myös Erikiä vastaan ja koulun sääntöjen mukaan tupakointi johtaa erottamiseen. Eli miksi he eivät vain joukolla valehdelleet napanneensa Erikin tupakoimassa? Ilmeisesti pahisoppilaat ovat valmiita kaatamaan sankollisia kiehuvaa vettä Erikin päälle, mutta valehtelu on nej-nej.

    I flera år har jag värjt mig mot denna bok, dess filmatiserade version och dess teaterpjäs utan att kunna bestämma mig om det var pga. bokens innehåll, författarens rykte eller uppståndelsen kring den. Men när ett oplanerat besök i augusti resulterade i att jag osökt fick boken i handen, blev jag, av ödets nyck så att säga, tvungen att i alla fall försöka läsa den. Den är gripande och jag blev fysiskt fäst vid boken till den graden att jag bad biblioteket att kunna köpa exet jag lånade. En nyinköpt, stel, oöppnad version känns inte alls åtråvärd efter att ha levt med denna bok och dess fasansfullt smärtsamma innehåll. Jag nekades dock denna möjlighet av bibliotekens avdelningschef. Tyvärr.Våld, hat, maktmissbruk. Gott och ond. Finns det alltid ett val? Kan den ena rättfärdiga den andra? Kan man lösgöra sig? Det finns troligtvis inga raka svar. Och Guillous intellektualiserade svar är kanske därför ibland önsketänkande som inte alltid lyckas överbrygga gapet mellan teori och verklighet.Jag har förstått att det finns diskussioner kring bokens sanningshalt. Jag bryr mig inte om det är en roman eller en självbiografi: Erik och Pierre finns, kamratuppfostran samt pennalism finns, våldsamheter i hemmet som i skolan finns, våld, lidande och ondskan likaså. Allt det andra är sekundärt. Den som har mött liknande situationer och människor eller den som har befunnit sig i Eriks eller Pierres skor, vet vad som är sant i boken. Vissa känslor, formuleringar och strategier kan man inte fantisera sig fram, tyvärr.Det enda jag hoppas är att Pierre och Erik verkligen har funnits där för varandra.//Ann

    Läste den på gymnasiet men tyckte inte den levde upp till mina förväntningar den här gången. Erik blir porträtterad som en övermänniska som kan allt och klarar av saker ingen annan skulle klara av. Det var nog lite fräckare när jag som yngre läste den kan jag tänka mig.Boken är kort och koncis, lite lagom spännande, och har olika episoder med olika typer av känslor inblandade. Men Guillou späder på ganska mycket tycker jag, blir lite småtjatigt i längden att läsa om hur man bäst slår ett slag mot näsan. Eller att det är en pojke mot hela regimen och att pojken till slut vinner(?) för att han är en superhjälte som inte gör något fel.

    A história de Erik é muito comovente, e levanta vários questionamentos sobre a violência. O garoto que apanha do pai repete o comportamento violento em tudo na vida, mas se vê obrigado a seguir por um caminho de não-violência quando chega a uma escola de elite altamente cruel. O livro foi transformado em filme, "Evil - Raízes do Mal", que faz uma boa adaptação da história, com algumas mudanças necessárias para o roteiro.

    Ruskig läsning. Hur manipulation, eftertänksamhet och mod faktiskt kan förändra ondskan själv är både intressant och på något sätt så skrämmande att man knappt vågar inse det själv. Boken borde uppmärksammas på nytt, det var ju ändå dryga 40 år sedan den skrevs men ock så aktuell och berörande.
