Overview En heldig løsning

Northern Norway in a future blighted by drought and extinction of species. Inge and his daughter Live are struggling to continue with their lives after the rest of their family was killed in an accident. Inge processes his grief in solitude by wearing his dead wife’s clothes. But the suspense ratchets up when pushy Tidemann finds out about Inge’s secret. What should Inge do? How will this be used against him by the top dog in the neighbouring village?

Reviews En heldig løsning

«Midthun skriv nøkternt og liketil, på linjene. Bragda hans er å skrive så mykje også mellom linjene at den vesle romanen kjennest dobbelt så stor, i verkekraft.»
