Overview Sauermugg
Sauermugg is a novel filled with energy, a gripping tale about a person in existential crisis, characterized by great linguistic power, intense depictions of the mechanisms of power and love, and topped off with a great dose of pitch-dark humour.

"The entire novel is light and elegant, with short and tenderly marked paragraphs, bouncing and consistent all at the same time, filled with howling black humour, abounding with witty and smart formulations given to the pen and tongue of a man that says "it has never fallen natural to me to be natural".
STAVANGER AFTENBLAD

"If you characterize the theme as a combination of Sartre and Camus (the sickness and the absurd) and Strindberg (the lhate of love and the hell of marriage), you have a good pointer about what this is all about. But Sæterbakken surpasses his predecessors in a big way. (...) You should read Sæterbakken for the sake of your lacking of peace of mind, and the pleasant discomfort it brings."

Reviews from Sauermugg
Heile romanen er lett og elegant, i korte og forsiktige markerte avsnitt, hoppande og konsistent på same tid, full av hylande svart humor, vrimlande av vittuge og vituge formuleringar, lagde i penn og munn til ein mann som seier om seg sjølv at det har aldri falt meg naturlig å være naturlig.Jan Askelund, Stavanger Aftenblad
Om man karakteriserer denne tematikk som en kombinasjon av Sarte og Camus (kvalmen og det absurde) og Strindberg (kjærlighetshatet og ekteskapshelvete), har man fått en pekepinn om hva det dreier seg om. Men Sæterbakken går sine forgjengere en høy gang. (...) Sæterbakken skal du lese for din manglende sjelefreds og ditt behagelige ubehags skyld.Øystein Rottem, Dagbladet
