Stig Aasvik
The mayor of Oslo

The Mayor of Oslo continues where the critically acclaimed Lofotveggen left off. The main character is being hounded by the Unemployment Office. He still needs a job. We find him on a job-seekers course, at the café, on a trip to Australia, at football training with his son, back to his mother's sudden death, the break-up and arguments with his father. The Mayor of Oslo is a dark, funny, desperate and original novel.
