Overview Kurt kurér
At last, another book about the fork truck driver Kurt! This time, rebels want to divide Norway into two parts and Kurt has to line up as Gunnar’s courier. His task is to deliver a super-important letter to Gunnar’s brother Bodvar, who is tied up at a quayside somewhere near the Russian border. Kurt is thrown into a near-fatal run of events, what with treachery, deprivation and the constant struggle to find working batteries for the truck.

Reviews from Kurt kurér

Kurts odyssé til Nord-Norge

“Den sjette Kurt-boka er en gøyal reise full av rufsete sjarm (...) Vittig, mørkt og litt voldelig fra duoen Erlend Loe & Kurt, i Kim Hjorthøys umiskjennelige strek."Maya Troberg Djuve, Dagbladet

Kurt holder koken

“Erlend Loe lar seg rive med av morsomme innfall og gags, han driver ap med høy og lav. Resultatet blir en lattervekkende fortelling, som på sitt beste blir grensesprengende (…)”Anne Cathrine Straume, NRK

Kurt på oppdrag

"«Kurt kurér» er en vilter reiseskildring, spekket med action, som vil glede barnlige lesere. De litt eldre vil kjenne igjen den skakke og naivistiske humoren som preger hele Erlend Loes forfatterskap."Haugesunds Avis, Geir F. Lie

Herlig crazy

"et pussig univers og en vill story (...) Kim Hiorthøys tegninger kler galskapen, ironien og dosene underliggende alvor (...) Boken kan nytes av flere nivåer lesere - av barn, av ungdom og av voksne - fra Loes tulleting langs Kurts vei til de mange raffinerte ordspill og pekere mot et større alvor - i et delt Norge. Boken vil glede alle mellom 6 og 99 år."
