Sagan om Tolkien (Swedish: The Fairy-tale of Tolkien or The Tolkien saga) is a Swedish-language book by Åke Ohlmarks, aftwerwards claimed by publishers (or the author?) to be the first biography in the world of J.R.R. Tolkien.[1] In any case, it was the first biography on Tolkien to be published in Sweden.

[edit] From the back cover

The Fairy-tale of Tolkien tells the story of the peculiar creator of the tales of the Ring. Professor Åke Ohlmarks - the Swedish translator of Tolkien - presents a portrait of J.R.R. Tolkien, covering his life and works. The book also provides a commentary to the trilogy - about its creation, languages and sources. It is the first Swedish biography centered on the greatest story-teller of our century.
