At last, nine years on from our first encounter with Oslo youngsters Lars and Hauk, Simone, Remi and Amar, the World Champion series is back.
It is 1991 and life is tough for 21-year-old Amar Singh. His parents believe their son is living the life of a dutiful young Sikh with ambitions to become an engineer. In reality, he has found a sense of belonging in Islam – but his Muslim friends in Grønland’s mosque community are unaware of his Sikh background. Amar’s close friend Fazal is en route to radicalisation and, as the novel opens, his childhood sweetheart, Preeti, has just been coerced into a forced marriage.
That’s when Hauk turns up.
The third book in Langeland’s Oslo cycle is a fast-paced, punchy and tense tale of identity, loyalty and vulnerability.
