Overview Nedslag

Ottar Arne Andersen, failed poet and author of mediocre advertising texts, recently widowed and retired, has finally worked up the courage to move back to his hometown. For more than forty years he has longed to return home to the winter and ideal skiing conditions. But when he is sitting with his boxes of books in the house he has bought, he realises it was maybe something else he longed for, something he is struggling to get back.

Landing is a cheerful and melancholic story about coming home and then trying to remember what it was that what it was that you left and why you left it. It is also a tale of soaring over the landscape of your childhood and making a good Telemark landing.
