Overview Natt til fjerde november

They sometimes thought that if Jonna had been younger, five or ten, perhaps, there would have been no question. Their daughter would most certainly have been killed. And later hidden and buried, or thrown in the sea. That would have made more sense. But she could never have run away! Where would she go?

Jonna is seventeen and disappears without a trace on November 4th. There is no note or diary to explain what has happened, and after several weeks her parents, Magnhild and Jon, are still without answers. Is all of this their fault?

This novel shows how alone human beings can be even within a family structure, as well as the brutal impact of grief – but also how that grief might serve to bring about change.

The Night of November 4th is a quivering chamber play that with few means and hushed language plays out well-known family scenes.

What do we really know about our children? asks Karin Fossum in this well directed psychological family drama.

An intense chamber play about a disappearance and the reactions of the family.

Karin Fossum has with the intense relationship novel The Night of November 4th written one of her strongest books.
