– For the king The country into the distance. The one you had long sought is on the way. He travels by day and night, and he bears in his hand the sign, the golden apple.

When the orphan Bo Vilhelm Olsson receive a golden apple of Auntie Lundin in the fruit shop becomes his world never again the same. Suddenly, he did not stay sitting alone on a park bench in Tegnérlunden. Now he is prince Mio who lives with his father the king in the The country into the distance. Prince Mio, riding the horse Miramis over the meadows and playing gawky with his best friend Jum Jum. But in his black castle in the country outside makes the knight Kato ready for battle, the cruel knight Kato with a heart of stone and a claw of iron. And the one he will fight is Mio – as it has been determined in thousands and thousands of years.

Mio, my Mio are fairy tale, adventure and social realism at the same time. It is a story that takes kids seriously. With imagination can Bosse, the lonely child on the park bench, creating a dream world to himself. It is a story that does not duck the dark at the same time inspire the hope and is tender without being the least bit sentimental. It is inexorably but not cruel, says Sofia Jupither.
