Summary
  • "Welcome to 1990s Norway. White picket fences run in neat rows and Christian conservatism runs deep. But as the Artist considers her work, things start stirring themselves up. In a corner of Oslo a coven of witches begin cooking up some curses. A time-travelling Edvard Munch arrives in town to join a death metal band, closely pursued by the teenaged subject of his painting Puberty, who has murder on her mind. Meanwhile, out deep in the forest, a group of school girls get very lost and things get very strange. And awful things happen in aspic."--Amazon.com
  • "Ellinor, a jaded PR consultant, is landed with an unusual brief when a colleague commits suicide. She finds herself working with the Norwegian Post and Communications Union, focused on a strange, inspiring story of one undelivered letter. What follows is a story of mundane lives raised to the pitch of heroism"--
