The Cheese. Life in hell

1921. In Norway there is a financial crisis, a major strike and prohibition. Johannes S. Andersen, known as «The Cheese" among the guys at Bastøy island reform school, has been a sailor and tries to live as an honest workman. But when there is no work, the family breaks up and the price of smuggler sprits is sky high, it is difficult to follow the straight and narrow. As they say: Once a reform school boy -- always a reform school boy?

First of three books about Johannes "Gulosten" Andersen (1898-1970): Bastøy island reform school alumni, sailor, worker, liquor smuggler, crook, resistance hero, MTB-shooter, hitman, carpenter.

A hell of a debut. Unheard of! As lightning form a clear sky, we have got a new comic book writer of format. It's confusing when new people fall into the public arena, out of nowhere, with fully formed masterpieces. … exceptional debut … the book it's absolutely amazingly good and rock solid."
