Overview Ordføreren i Oslo
The Mayor of Oslo continues where the critically acclaimed Lofotveggen left off. The main character is being hounded by the Unemployment Office. He still needs a job. We find him on a job-seekers course, at the café, on a trip to Australia, at football training with his son, back to his mother's sudden death, the break-up and arguments with his father. The Major of Oslo is a dark, funny, desperate and original novel.

Jan Askelund, Stavanger Aftenblad
«Jeg leser ikke om Stig Aasvik fordi jeg vil lære mer om Stig Aasvik, jeg leser Stig Aasvik fordi han lærer meg noe om meg selv.»

«Samfunnet, det norske, trenger folk som jeg-personen, og bøker som dette.»


Ola Jostein Jørgensen, BLA Bokvennen Litterær Avis
« (...) Aasvik er ein meister i å spegle kor flyktige tankar er og korleis dei hoppar saumlaust mellom det trivielle og eksistensielle.»

« (...) Stig Aasvik er ein god forfattar med mykje fint på hjartet.»Katrine Judit Urke, Dag og Tid
