The parasite MTG turns people into killing machines. Now it has reached Norway. Marlen understands what lies ahead, the end of everything. But she refuses to give up, and together with her family she tries to avoid death.
Marlen will have to call up all her resources of courage and will-power to meet the challenges which await her. This is the second book in the critically acclaimed series I morgen er alt mørkt.
Civilisation is falling apart, and people are fleeing throughout the town. As in all wars, it's every man for himself, with the strongest fending for themselves and the weakest, especially women and children, outwith the protections of modern civilised society. But Marlen doesn't let herself fall apart. She tries to preserve her humanity, a task which is far from easy, and she has to stretch her moral boundaries far beyond breaking-point.
Rights for books 1 and 2 have already been sold to Denmark. This is our biggest potential action story for export.
'The story is like a clenched fist in the stomach, and I would not be surprised if yet another Young People’s Prize for Literature awaits him.'
‘Sigbjørn Mostue always writes well, and this fast-moving and absorbing novel is no exception. Marlen’s Story is both entertaining and thought-provoking. Is nature taking such a brutal revenge? Are we facing an unstoppable epidemic?’
‘A virus is creating a pandemic where infected people go mad and attack everybody around. It becomes a struggle between life and death and a moral struggle to make the right choices. … Can it be morally defensible to kill people who are obviously sick? Can social cohesion be maintained in an extreme situation which can easily develop into everybody for himself or herself?’
