Overview Svensken
Jens Persson lives with four Swedish tradesmen in an abandoned solarium in Oslo. Jens in 41 and saving money with a foundation, but he does not own anything. It is the World Ski Championships 2011 and victory celebrations in Holmenkollen, and while out on the town Jens meets Katrine. For the first time in ages he stands on the threshold of something that might be good. Svensken is a sharp-sighted and gripping novel about balancing on the ramp and seeing the Norwegian façade from the outside.
