Choices

Meet author Torbjörn Hedlund and hear him talk about his life and his book Vägval. Torbjörn was born as the youngest of 14 siblings and got his first permanent job as a cleaner at the fan factory in Byske. When he met Orvar Bergmark in Örebro at the age of 21, his football career seemed to be set, but two events turned everything upside down and Torbjörn's path led in a completely different direction.

"He had enough talent to become an elite player in both football and ice hockey. But Torbjörn Hedlund turned down the offers of the elite clubs, and followed his inner voice. In his book Vägval (Choices), Torbjörn tells the story of his winding road from the factory floor in Byske to becoming an acclaimed orthopaedist. It makes fascinating reading." /Robert Tedestedt, Journalist and author
