Abstract [en]

The Power watch (Silvermaktklockan) is a novel for children between 9 and 12. The main character is the 10-year old boy Valter who has an issue with time. Valter lives with his parents and a younger sister, Wilma. 

The story begins with a complicated morning when a lot of distractions and anger makes it difficult for Valter to get to school in time. Valter thinks school is boring and meaningless, but his best friend, Oscar, makes it easier. Oscar understands him. Valter and Oscar lives in the same house. 

A few days later, Valter and Wilma visits their grandmother. In her attic, Valter finds a watch. Valter likes it very much and ”borrows” it. The watch probably belonged to Valter’s late grandfather.

In school a few days later, Valter and Oscar discovers that the watch can slow down time. Valter is delighted because it helps him win time. 

But he becomes more and more addicted to the ”power watch” and the surrounding world becomes more and more suspicious. Valter’s grandmother becomes ill and Oscar warns him, says he has to stop using the watch. The illness might depend on the disturbed time. But Valter can’t stop using the watch, and it ends up in a fight between him and Oscar. Oscar’s nose is bleeding and Valter runs home.

Valter finds his grandfather’s notebook and after he’s read it, he meets a neighbor, Blomberg, who is a watchmaker and used to know Walter’s grandfather. It turns out there are two watches, one in silver and one in gold. The one in gold compensated for the lost time and that watch is in Blomberg’s home. Now, Blomberg steals the silver watch from Valter.

Later the same evening, Valter’s sister Wilma visits Blomberg, takes the two watches and throws them from the balcony. She tells Valter that she liked him better before he started using the watch.

In the end, Valter feels a kind of release. The addiction to the clock has become a burden. 

In school, he gets a blue-haired pupil assistant who makes his days easier.
