Hoeg's first novel, this work established him instantly in Scandanavia as one of the most exciting young writers today. Through a series of vividly imagined and wildly colorful characters, Hoeg gives a very different account of the 20th century, which in Denmark encompasses the transition from a medieval society to a modern welfare state with its accompanying cultural revolutions. 2 cassettes.
