Overview Hysj

Something happens that makes the prostitute start spying on one of her customers, a family man residing in the wealthy area of Frogner in Oslo. The summer is warm; there is a smell of flowers and dust in the calm streets. Here a grim drama takes place, with a brutal outcome.

...that it is possible to write something so beautiful about something as awful as the inevitable loneliness of man.
