Summary/Abstract: The paper aims at analysing the work of Maciej Zaremba Bielawski; a prominent reporter and publicist for Sweden’s largest daily “Dagens Nyheter”. Zaremba; who emigrated from Poland in 1969 in the aftermath of March ’68 events; is now considered as a Swedish journalist of Polish descent; rather than as a Polish immigrant settled in Sweden. Thus; in the study; special emphasis is placed on exploring identity aspects of Zaremba’s three books translated from Swedish and published in Poland: Polski hydraulik i inne opowieści ze Szwecji [Polish Plumber and Other Stories from Sweden]; Leśna mafia. Szwedzki thriller ekologiczny [Forest Mafia. A Swedish Eco-Thriller]; Higieniści. Z dziejów eugeniki [Hygienists. From the History of Eugenics]. Moreover; the article examines the poetics of Zaremba’s journalistic reportage with reference to practices of the so-called “engaged” journalism. The research also touches upon Zaremba’s attitude towards the literary stylistics of the Polish school of reportage; as well as his engagement in promoting Polish literature and culture in Sweden.
