Birger Brunkeberg has an easy-going life. He has an enormous collection of CD's and a good friend in prison. But one day the doorbell rings and reality hits his life with a hard fist. Mannen som gikk gjennom lydmuren is the story of this happy music-lover and the life he didn't know he was missing. A feel-good rock-and-roll novel!
'(…) a novel whose style and tempo resemble a rock tune, and which in its own terminology could have been written by Dr. Feelgood.'
'Arne Svingen’s latest book could be described as a real feel-good novel. If you mix Nick Hornby and Fredrik Backmann you will get a good idea of how it sounds.'
'Svingen has repeatedly shown that he is an ingenious storyteller, and when he tosses in a suitable dose of feel-good factor as here, it becomes quite entertaining.'
'The novel therefore has something in common with Nick Hornby’s writings, not least ’High Fidelity’ and ’About a Boy.’ Birger is a charming nerd'
'Readers of Arne Svingen’s books for children and young people will recognise the playful language and the irrepressible gallows humour.'
