(As I Am)

Agnetha Fältskog

Livsbilder berättade för Brita Åhman

"Plötsligt en dag ringde det på telefonen hemma. Det var Little Gerhard från skivbolaget Cupol i Stockholm..."

"Jag har inte stängt núgra dörrar. Jag känner bara att jag inte vill vara på något speciellt sätt. Jag måste få vara som jag är."

Agnetha Fältskog är en av våra stärsta sångerskor genom tiderna. Sen nära tio år har hon avstått från att framträda, såväl på scen som i massmedia. Nu bryter hon sin tystnad och berätter öppenhjärtligt för journalisten Brita Åhman om sitt liv och sitt arbete.

Som jeg er

as I am: ABBA Before & Beyond

Agnetha Fältskog with Brita Åhman

From her early career when she topped the Swedish charts at the age of 17 to her marriage to Björn Ulvaeus, the ABBA phenomenon, her solo career and stepping out of the limelight, Agnetha Fältskog tells her own story and sets the record straight.

‘When myths develop about you – such as attempts by the press to portray me as another Garbo – it canbe dangerous. People get the wrong impression that you have closed all the doors and losat interest in everything. Well, I haven’t closed any doors – not to myself, new ideas, new opportunities or my own music’.


Agnetha Fältskog is the first member of Swedish pop legends ABBA to tell her own story in a book which sets the record straight on countless issues where this sensitive and talented performer has been misquoted and misrepresented by the world’s press.

As I Am covers Agnetha’s extraordinary career from its beginning in a small town in Sweden when she was only 15 to knocking the Beatles off the top of the Swedish pop chart just two years later, through the hard slog of touring aro9und Europe and on into the phenomenal ABBA years – Eurovision, the concerts, the hit records, the TV appearances, the media attention, the fans, her marriage, her children, the good times, the bad times and the strain of the final tour in 1979.

Agnetha explains frankly and honestly the reasons behind the break-up of ABBA and tells of the difficult times which followed, the solo career which was cut short just when it seemed to be going so well, her decision to step out of the limelight, her life today and her plans for the future.
