Due to great interest, we have issued tickets with a space guarantee for this long reading with Erlend Loe. The ticket also includes some snacks from Hell (with obvious traces of nuts).

None of the following would have happened if Rakel had not excavated a flowerbed between the fence and raspberry bushes. But she had to. And so it had to happen.

Newly divorced Rachel has trouble finding herself in the townhouse she bought after many years in the villa. One day she digs in the garden and finds a weed. A long flight of stairs she later finds an office that turns out to be one of Hell's entrances. The lady selling entrance tickets has a basket in front of her with the least popular twist of all time.

And the devil? A potent man with blue and green eyes alternating with macadamia nuts and French cheeses. And with New Norwegian as the preferred language. No wonder Rachel gets charmed.

This summer, Erlend Loe comes up with a short novel about the big questions in human life: the problem of evil, what really exists between heaven and earth, and why those who like pineapple on pizza are supposed to have their own place in hell.

At the Literature House this evening, you can hear Loe read through the entire narrative, which can clearly be described as a love story of Satan.
