Teabag

One evening in a suburb, author Jesper Humlin meets three immigrant girls at a boxing club. They are there to learn how to write. The girls tell Jesper about their lives, and a planned detective novel becomes something entirely different than an ordinary mystery. Jesper and the girls are living in the same country, but in two different worlds. Tea-Bag is a tale of myth and reality. It is about Sweden in 2003, seen through a middle-aged man’s eyes.
