Read full description of the books Карлсон, който живее на покрива:The Great Karlsson Experiment
Having read the Swedish original and the English and German translations, I had to get the French one too. (I wish I could read it in Russian, but my command of the language is insufficient). Out of the four I can appreciate, it seems to me the relative quality is pretty clear. In Swedish, it's a masterpiece. In German, it's nearly as good. In French, it's okay but not really anything special. And in English, it's disappointing.
Not, who's read it in English, pours scorn on my opinions. How can I know it's funnier in one language than another? I just know, it's bleeding obvious, but as usual with humor it's hard to justify my claims. Things don't get funnier when you explain them.
So, here's the Great Karlsson Experiment. (World's best experiment in comparative translation studies, guess what that is?) If you have read Karlsson in at least two languages, please message me to say what your ranking is. I will compile statistics and find out how well people agree. I predict there will be good correlation... but experience tells me that you are often surprised when you actually look at the data!
If you want to read it for free online, here are links for Swedish, German, English and Russian. It's nice and short - I just read the French version, which certainly didn't take more than a couple of hours. And if you've got kids of an appropriate age, pretty much everyone says it's a great bednight book.
Data! I want data!
