Overview JEG SKAL HENTE DEG

I’LL COME GET YOU is a love story, as heavenly as it might be impossible, with a pulse that leaves you gasping for air.

I’ve found love, what now. She’s about to start drama school, lives in a shared house and has big dreams. Harald is a musician, a free spirit without a fixed address, a drugged-up romantic, a suspect known to the police.

When it’s just the two of them, it’s bliss, but in public she’s sometimes ashamed of him, a thought that also makes her ashamed of herself. She thinks, but doesn’t say: I have a future, but you might not.

He disappears after a party, and no one has heard from him for five days. She searches desperately amongst friends and acquaintances, hasn’t slept in fifty, seventy hours, more than that now. We follow her for a frantic twenty-four hours, all over Oslo, on what might be a rescue mission, or a search just moments too late.

A SLIPSTREAM OF A NOVEL
«The last part of the book is one of the most exciting things I've read. […] I’LL COME GET YOU goes into something absolutely essential in the meeting between humans: the individual limits of what is acceptable, the potential disgust and contempt. This makes the novel an insightful read.»
NRK, five/six stars

THE DEVIL COME GET ME
«… a story, written with command of form and style, about bringing out the best in both oneself and others.»
KLASSEKAMPEN

Reviews JEG SKAL HENTE DEG

Et dragsug av en roman 27.02.2024

«Siden debuten i 2013 med romanen Null, som vant Tarjei Vesaas’ debutantpris, har Pedersen tilbudt egenartede og energiske bøker. Hennes nye roman, Jeg skal hente deg, føyer seg i denne rekken.»

«Den siste delen av boken er noe av det mest spennende jeg har lest.»

«Jeg skal hente deg går inn på noe helt essensielt i møtet mellom mennesker: de individuelle grensene for det akseptable, den potensielle avskyen og forakten. Dette gjør romanen til innsiktsvekkende lesning.»

 
Thula Kopreitan, nrk.no

«En knakende god bok med overraskende vendinger og ny innsikt.»

«Anbefales!»

Chantal Søgaard, Sandefjords Blad

Kvervlar i medvitsstraumen 15.03.2024

«Gine Cornelia Pedersen skriv hektisk og medrivande om sterke kjensler.»

«Gine Cornelia Pedersen har skrive ein fin roman der den ujamne høgremargen kler stilen, som verkar ekte, direkte og evig aktuell.»
