Erik Eikehaug
The Treasure and the Thief

Vetle is the son of an enormously successful author and, like his brother Fartein, is trying to follow in his father’s footsteps. It doesn’t always go as planned, first and foremost because Life constantly gets in the way. Life, and the pursuit of love, and a man Vetle can call his own?

The Treasure and the Thief is the story of Vetle, of the Bear’s Den and the gay block, of a breakthrough and one hell of a comeback– as well as the question: What do you prefer? Fucking or laughing? Answer quick.

Erik Eikehaug succeeds with a romantic comedy.

Atle Christiansen, Aftenposten

So much lyrical finesse that at times it feels like music.

Shana Fevang Mathai, NRK

A tremendously good novel about love and family relations ...
