And the winners are…

In our contest last week we urged you to send in your best photos of the tour and surroundings, in order to win a signed copy of the brand new photo book En vacker bok.


Reviewing En vacker bok

Last week we reviewed the live album, today it’s time for the book to be scrutinized. They come as a package – a tour CD and a tour photo book.
