Guro Hoftun

The swede

Jens Persson lives with four other Swedish tradesmen in an abandoned solarium in Oslo. Jens in 41 and saving money in a foundation, but he does not own anything. It is the World Ski Championships 2011 and victory celebrations in Holmenkollen, and while out on the town Jens meets Katrine. For the first time in ages he stands on the threshold of something that might be good.

The Swede is a sharp-sighted and edge of the gripping novel about balancing on the ramp and seeing the Norwegian fa├žade from the outside.
