The Swedish Academy on Thursday announced that Romanian-born German writer Herta Mueller, and not Israeli author Amos Oz, has won the 2009 Nobel Prize in literature. According to the academy, Mueller was honored for her work that "with the concentration of poetry and the frankness of prose, depicts the landscape of the dispossessed." Odds published by UK betting shop Ladbrokes earlier in the week claimed Oz, one the most influential and well-regarded intellectuals in Israel, was estimated to have a 4 to 1 chance of winning the award.
