Morrissey launches Autobiography at book signing in Sweden

Morrissey launched his memoir, Autobiography, at a book signing in Gothenburg, Sweden last night [October 17].

Queues began at the Akademibokhandeln bookshop on Wednesday lunchtime. The Guardian estimated that the crowd numbers peaked at 500 people.

Asked by Radio Sweden why Morrissey had chosen Gothenburg for his book launch, The Guardian reports that Maria Hamrefors, the book store's manager, said: "As far as I know, he really likes Sweden and he has some very good and nice fans in Gothenburg and has enjoyed playing concerts there."

For the signing, Morrissey wore a white denim jacket and white denim jeans and a blue checked shirt.

The press reports that this is Morrissey's only confirmed public appearance to promote the book. So far, he has declined interview requests. No extracts of the book appeared before publication.
