In 2033, in a broken-down world, Sylvester Litlafosse writes his chronicle. He is located in a thinly populated village in western Norway, where the few who survive are keeping something like a tiny community alive. Through his writing, Sylvester unravels the dramatic story that led him there.
A central figure in the story is Sylvester’s unorthodox master Åskell Suparman, an occultist, charlatan and saint, who wants to burn all of Europe so a new world can raise from its ruins.
Through his work with the chronicle, Sylvester must travel beyond the small village to see how the rest of the world fares. The journeys are not without dangers. Soon travellers appear in the village, travellers without noble motifs, and they set in motion a chain of events which will have big consequences.
The Rock Crypt is a fantastic novel in all senses of the word, here the novel of ideas meets the thriller, and realism meets fantasy.
