A touching story of growing up and discovering what really matters. Joel makes three New Yearâs resolutions: To see a naked lady, to toughen himself up so that he can live to be, to see the sea. How he sets out to fulfil these is a moving story of self-discovery.

Synopsis

When the Snow Fell by Henning Mankell

Joel is growing up. He is getting interested in girls. They all look pretty impossible for a motherless boy in Northern Sweden. Especially as his sailor dad is keen to drown his sadness in drink, and all the local matrons are watching the pair of them. And then he saves old Simon from a frozen death in the woods, and Joel becomes a local hero.
