The Process was inspired by a controversial incident that took place on May 25, 1946. Five young writers, including Stig Dagerman, who later became the founders of a literary movement in the 1940s, had attended a party arranged by their publisher and missed the last ferry home. When they eventually decided to row back over in a borrowed boat, there were unexpected consequences. On the opposite shore, a large group of policemen were waiting for them with drawn weapons, and the five writers had to spend the next 24 hours in jail cells and interrogation rooms. The five were – just like most of the writers of the day – very critical towards the increasingly strong, overbearing apparatus of the state. Now, they had their chance to openly criticize it in their periodical “40-tal”.

In issue 6 of 1946, they published the now legendary “Roddarantologin” (Anthology of Rowers), in which Stig Dagerman contributed his short story “The Process”(undoubtedly strongly influenced by Franz Kafka’s novel by the same name). In his novel, Kafka criticizes the “endless corridors” of the modern bureaucracy, and the increasingly tightening grip of the state on the citizens’ freedom of thought.

Dagerman also commented on the excessive consequences of the rowing-boat incident in one of his famous ”Dagsedlar” (“Boxes on the ears”), which he published in the periodical “Arbetaren” (The Worker). A statement from one of the prosecutors in the case read “…as regards literary writers, one could almost presuppose a certain abnormal disposition”.
