In order to get in the right 'mood' for a trip to Sweden, I'd like to read some English-language fiction and non-fiction that is set in Sweden. This could take the form of travelogues, novels, or historical accounts.
Lonely Planet usually has some good listings for travel reading, but for some reason their recommendations for Sweden are abysmal, including, for example, "two chapters of Bill Bryson's Neither Here Nor There." What?
What are some good books that convey some of the zeitgeist, atmosphere, and history of Sweden?
(Example: If I were asking for films, My Life as a Dog would come near the top of the list. If I were asking about Berlin, In the Garden of Beasts would be a superb recommendation. Any travelogues would also be appropriate.)
