About Magnus Trangard

What book did you last read?

The Architect's Apprentice by Elif Shafak. A great read. I love a fictional story where the backdrop is in a “real” setting.

What could you not live without?

Exercise! My mood is highly correlated with the amount of exercise I get. It’s a great stress reliever that I couldn’t do without.

Holiday recommendation?

South America. It’s such a diverse continent with great sceneries ranging from snow capped mountains to paradise beaches and don’t forget the Argentine steak.
