The Boy in the Dark
In my opinion, Eeg is one of the best Scandinavian YA authors. He has a rare presence. He has an eye for decisive situations, and he masters a prose that other authors only can dream of.

Eeg writes so excellent about feelings that they are transmitted to the reader.
Kristine Isaksen, VG, 5/6 stars
An authorship of class (…) quite simply great literature.
