Gothenburg Book Fair opens amid boycotts
Thursday marks the opening of Scandinavia's biggest book fair with tens of thousands of visitors expected over the coming four days.
But this year's Gothenburg Book Fair has had to contend with several controversies.
Like last year, the far-right newspaper Nya Tider will be present at the fair, which has prompted several authors to boycott the annual event in protest.
Several alternative book fairs and programing as also popped up in response to the newspaper's invite.
Just outside the venue of the book fair, the neo-Nazi Nordic Resistance Movement will hold a demonstration on Saturday. The event as well as the counter-demostrations against it have prompted security concerns for the fair and attendees in the area.
