Overview Hoppuka

The Four Hills Tournament (Hoppuka) is a crocked and enjoyable travelogue from the German-Austrian ski jump tournament towns. It is a journey into a peculiar and colourful universe that is seldom caught by the TV-cameras, with oompa bands, Polish tourists and talkative Russian sports journalists. But it is also a bitter sweet travel in time, back to the golden age of ski jumping. A time when all of Norway sat glued to the TV screen on New Years Day waiting for hours for the first Norwegian jumper, only to see him fail.
Thomas Karlsen, the writer behind the critically acclaimed and bestselling autobiography of Claus Lundekvam, is back with a new book!
