Vilhelm Thygesen has an innocent errand on one of the islands in the Oslo archipelago. It’s a sunny Maundy Thursday and Thygesen’s 52nd birthday. He is out to clean a beach where a gang of misfits of various kinds have found each other in the nudist swimming club “Hollby United”. But something goes terribly wrong on the idyllic island. A young troubled man with a terrorist mask contacts Thygesen, and reluctantly Thygesen starts investigating a mass killing that has yet to happen. The terrorism he uncovers has little to do with international terror. It is rather terror on the micro plane, described in a novel which is marked by both everyday realism and experimental modernism.

“The former leftist radical Michelet castigates the system and the conditions it offers people. But most of all it’s Michelet’s style that catches the reader’s attention … Michelet writes like a mixture of Bukowski, Chandler and Hamsun on speed.” Berlingske Tidende, Denmark
“Scary … the knowledge of the tragedy that sooner or later will hit happy, unknowing people gives the book its nerve … THYGESEN’S TERRORIST has far more to offer than an inventive ‘criminalistic’ twist.” Adresseavisen
