Solar flares have caused a power cut, and a mother and her teenage son are sequestered in a flat. The son barely speakes, and the mother has something to hide. In the texts she writes she tries to get closer to her son. But what will happen when they have to wash in the same little pond every day, when they run out of food and they freeze? DOBBEL DYNE is a loaded and exciting nobel about what we keep to outselves.
Gro Dahle (1962–) writes for both children and adults. As a children’s book writer she is known for her poetic books on themes that are often given little attention.

She has also published novels and short stories.
