In 1924, the Norwegian government was forced to enter into a secret agreement giving the Soviet Union control of Svalbard in 2020.
But this document soon went missing under unclear circumstances, and the agreement was forgotten. It resurfaces more than ninety years later. In a time when Europe is standing against an agressive Russia that wants to be a superpower in the far north of the world. The Russian president implements a comprehensive plan to undermine Norwegian sovereignty in Svalbard. The battle for the Arctic gains a new dimension, and drama unfolds in Longyearbyen.
Om hundre år er allting gjemt is an international thriller that reflects the political conflict that already existed when the Svalbard Treaty was entered into in 1920 and that may flare up again as the eyes of the world look to the Arctic.
‘Om hundre år er allting gjemt is frighteningly close to our reality.’
‘The battle for the Arctic is given a new dimension in this interesting first novel.’
