“The way I write, I deal a lot with ambiguity. I like to play with words and I like it if sentences have multiple meanings, and a way of doing that when you read them out loud is through not using intonation. People sometimes say I try to sound like a machine, or like I’m from outer space, or I have a Swedish accent. I might have a bit of Swedish accent, but it’s also about this idea of having every word, or even every letter of every word, have the same value somehow.” Karl Holmqvist
