491 by Lars Görling


Vintage novel, paperback, orange pages. 

The novel tells of seven delinquent boys, ranging in age from fifteen to seventeen, who have either been condemned by the Criminal Court or taken in off the street. The boys agree - in return for room, board, and a little pocket money - to act as guinea pigs for a psychological testing project. The hostel in which they live, in a condemned building, becomes the scene for a merciless battle among the boys and the authorities.

The publication of 491 created a literary storm, and the book sold over 25,000 copies in both cloth and paperbound editions in his native Sweden alone.
