ABBA The lovers whose music conquered the world
Harry Edgington and Peter Himmelstrand
When did it start? Was it when Bjorn heard seventeen-year-old Anna singing on
the radio? Or when he met Benny and they spent a night writing songs in an empty
office block? Was it when Annifrid decided to leave her husband and two children
and devote her life to music? Or when two young songwriters fell in love with
two beautiful girl singers?
Since they won the Eurovision Song Contest, Abba have gone on to conquer the
world, with every record a No. 1 hit. Behind their phenomenal success is a
fascinating story of talent, luck – and love.
