Overview Jævelunge

Nineties Norway. Vito grows up in Porsgrunn with a Norwegian father and a Russian mother. The summer before he starts junior high, he discovers hip-hop, but when the school year starts, he soon ends up in a sketchy environment characterised by substance abuse and crime. It is here he meets Alvarez, a boy from the neighbourhood, the only one of them with a heart, and together they try to find a way out.

Svindland’s novel is a tale of friendship, love and survival in a town full of drugs and hopeless souls. Surely there’s nothing funny about that? Well, then.
