Kverneland’s deeply personal graphic novel A Voluntary Death (2017) contemplates his father and his father’s suicide, when Kverneland was eighteen, and how this affected his life. In addition to Kverneland’s outstanding art, the book uses family photographs in a dynamic way. The storytelling is immediate and powerful, at times with a liberating humor. The reviews were fantastic, and the book was awarded the 2018 Ministry of Culture’s Prize, and Gold, in "The year’s most beautiful books"«Ein Freitod» was published in German in June 2019 by Avant Verlag.
