Nobel laureates in literature are known

The Swedish Academy nominated the laureates for Nobel Prize in literature. Honorary awards will receive Polish Olga Tokarchuk and Peter Handke from Austria. For the first time this year two awards were given in the field of literature. This is because the Swedish Academy did not give the Nobel Prize in literature last year. The decision is linked to the scandal on sexual harassment. 18 women accused the husband of one of the jury members on sexual harassment.
