Overview Hjemlandet
Norwegian history’s greatest biography work has come to the last year of the war and the beginning of the new era. The country’s leadership is scattered throughout four capital cities. Europe is falling apart and reorganising.

The author will once again provoke attention, debate – and major sales.

'This is the art of writing and the art of story telling at their best.'

'An enlightening description of the darkest snippet in the kingdom’s recent history.'

'With praise, criticism and irony – but above all with energy and engagement and a burning desire to present his material.'
VG

'Tor Bomann-Larsen presents his fast-moving account of King Haakon’s war years in elegant language and with a masterly grasp of the topic.'

"Med suverent grep på stoffet og sjelden språklig eleganse gir Bomann-Larsen oss kong Haakons krigsår i en forrykende fortelling."
 
Alf K. Igland, Fædrelandsvennen
«Slik blir kjernen i dette sjuende bindet selve ‘hjemlandets sjel’, og få skildrer patosutløsende følelser så jordnært og lyrisk spiselig som Bomann-Larsen»Mode Steinkjer, Dagsavisen
