For more than seventy years - through the Weimar Republic, Nazism and comunism - the Troye family where the formal owners of a considerable number of buildings in Berlin - locked behind an iron curtain that no one thought would fall. Christian Borch tell us a story about Norwegian capitalism in the youth of the nation. A story of great wealth and bold speculation. The book is a fascinating tale about a visionary businessman in extraordinary times, and a patrician family from Bergen, where the writer himself is the third generation.
