Overview Samleren

Norway's most prominent art critic, Jan Solheim, gets an offer he can't refuse. An eccentric art collector is holding the world's greatest artist hidden in a remote hut in Eastern Norway. He lets Solheim meet the aged painter, Amalie Caridi, on one condition: he can't leave Caridi without having stolen away a painting.The assignment is not only shocking and absurd; it appears to be impossible. Unless Solheim abandons the idea and sacrifices everything to ensure his own and his favourite artist's names in history …Samleren is ”art crime” in the borderland between The Da Vinci Code and Wonderboy, a cleverly written page-turner which lays bare the inner workings of the art world with ingenuity and passion.
