A photobook with swedish text.
In the summer of 1999, for Swedish conditions unusually hot and dry. August 1st, a fire started in the Swedish National Park Tyresta. Two weeks later, the Swedish rescue services, military, home guards and police conducted one of the largest rescue efforts in modern Swedish history, to save a forest.
Brandplats 3 is a crime scene for an arson investigation, while it is a recovery room for nature in the area. The landscape bears traces of a drama in which the fires explosiveness is in contrast to nature’s slow submission.
Björn Larsson has photographed in the fire area. His pictures from a ten-year walk tells how the fire-ravaged area slowly changed over time. Documents from the emergency services, police, military, the Home Guard and the press talks about the dramatic events during some extremely hot and dry weeks in August 1999 - on fire fighting and the subsequent efforts to prosecute somebody for a crime.
