Swedish Books

What are some good Swedish books to help me get some extra practice in. Preferably beginner level but would love to hear of any profound works that i could look forward to reading in the future. Also websites that offer these for free would be helpful. Thanks!

You are basically restricted to the classics if you want free legal e-books. That being said there are some worthwhile classics that could be suitable. With suitable I mean short, reasonably modern language, and considered very good literature. I suggest

I'm looking forward to reading books by John Alvide Lindqvist. I'm read a lot of horror, and the Swedish adaptation of Let The Right One In struck a note in my head. But I can't speak for his actual skill as an author.

I actually just got through that one, albeit the English translation, and I thought it was great.

Although illegal, you can download the ultimate Swedish pack in some torrent sites.

I bought an English translation of a Kurt Wallender book by Henning Mankell, but was so annoyed by the super short sentences that I could hardly stand to read it. But you can order the same books in Swedish from Amazon in the US, and they have really short sentences too, which I am totally able to read. So while it's not beginner beginner, it's very manageable.
