As Nan Chancy is/was (?) Tasmanian I guess that even
almost makes her an honorary Scandinavian (any
thoughts on this Sally?) the nickname for tasmanians
is Taswegians. She wrote about a dozen novels from the
'50s through to the '70s. two "Devils hill" and "they
found a cave" were filmed in the '80s. I read a few
but they weren't memorable to me.
