Is there a Leak?

There have been speculations about a leak in the Swedish Academy, the body that decides who will win the Nobel Prize in litterature. I do not know whether it is true, but the odds on the eventual winner this year is said to have been very low with bookmakers. This is no good. If the prize is supposed to be a secret until the Academy lets the world know, but there is even a doubt that this is not so, the Academy needs to look carefully into the issue. The Nobel Prize has a very good reputation, but it must not be soiled, not even by doubts.
