“In this frozen jungle where everyone’s in the same boat, the rules that seem so appalling to him at the beginning, he soon learns, and in doing so, forfeits his last shred of humanity. By placing 11811’s story under the microscope, without exaggerating and without excess pity for the character, Månsson succeeds in seizing the exact moment at which a human being ceases to be one, like everyone else.”
