EDs in the Nordic countries

Hiya! I'm a longtime lurker, first time poster.

I was wondering if any of you have any knowledge about books concering research/personal stories by or on eating disorders/eating disordered people in the Nordic countries?

Eh, that was a bit awkwardly phrased. The deal is this: I'm writing a thesis for school which counts for 50% of my grade, and one of the topics I'm considering writing about is eating disorders in the Nordic countries. That includes treatment and the differences in treatment between the countries, how the treatment has differed over time, social stigma connected to having an ED, how it is related to other mental illnesses and their prevalence in the different countries and just in general about EDs.

I know it's not the biggest research field, which is why I'm looking to you for possible help. I'm Norwegian, so if you have anything in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish or even Icelandic, that would be great (any of these in translated form (to English) is also great, including Finnish). I'm also allowed to have one work from another nationality outside the Nordic countries, so if you have a really good book about EDs you want to reccomend from any country, please do (as long as it is translated into/is natively English).

To be honest, I'm a bit unsure what to do with the whole ordeal and these are just my rough plans for the thesis. If you have any ideas you want to contribute, please do!

Thanks :)
