Third, and Final, Novel about Bjørn Hansen

Dag Solstad

Bjørn Hansen, 77 years old, is almost a fossile, living alone in a one-room apartment in a poor inner city district in Oslo. He has lost interest in current affairs. Out of fear of missing the gravity of death, he turns to his notions of heaven, and converses with those who have entered before him.

One day, his daughter-in-law knocks on Bjørn Hansen’s door. She is accompanied by Bjørn Hansen’s grandson Wiggo, who is about to start his studies at the University of Oslo, and she has decided that he will stay with his grandfather. Solstad’s 19th novel completes the Bjørn Hansen trilogy, which will stand as one of the major works of Solstad’s oeuvre.
