Tore Renberg
See You Tomorrow

Pål has a shameful secret that has dragged him into huge debt, much bigger than he can ever hope to pay down on his modest civil servant salary. He desperately doesn’t want anybody to find out – especially not his teenage daughters or his ex-wife. It is time to get creative.
Sixteen-year-old Sandra, too, has a secret. She is in love with the impossibly charming delinquent Daniel William, a love so strong and pure nothing can come in its way. Not her concerned parents, not Jesus, and certainly not some other girl.
Cecilie carries the biggest secret of them all, a baby growing inside her. She can only hope that her boyfriend Rudi is the child's father.

Over three fateful September days, these lives cross in a whirlwind of brutality, laughter, tragedy and love that will change them forever. Tore Renberg has written a fast-paced, moving and darkly funny page-turner about people who are trying to fill the holes in their lives, a messy love story with strong ties to the modern TV drama. Combining Nordic social realism and Western popular culture, horror and hope, metal music and literary marvels, See You Tomorrow is a startlingly original, eerie and hilarious novel about friendship, crime, loneliness and tragic death – that will stay with the reader long after the last page is devoured.

See You Tomorrow is the first freestanding volume in a planned series of five novels. The second volume, From All Sides, was published in 2014.
