Life in a grand Norwegian mountain hotel is not what it used to be; Norwegians have deserted the traditions of their nati- ve land, with its invigorating ski trips and lake-fresh trout, for charter tours to `the infernal south'. Sedd's grandparents are fighting a losing battle to maintain standards at Fa vnesheim hotel, which has been in the family for generations, whilst the young Sedd observes developments with a keen eye for the absurd and a growing sense of unease that all is not well. He has his own demons too, as he tries to unearth the truth about his father, an Indian doctor who died as Sedd was conceived, and his mother, who was `taken by Time' when he was a toddler and whom he remembers only as a foxy-red sheen in the air. Death stalks this peaceful place, as cracks in the polished surface begin to show. The first to die is the bank manager, who has kept the hotel going on credit, and whose demi- se has ominous consequences for the whole district. Then the new bank manager's daughter almost literally pesters the life out of Sedd; he has trained as a life-saver, but finds saving people more complicated than he had thought. He becomes obsessed with a locked room, which he imagines will reveal the truth about his mother - but it refuses to give up its secrets. Erik Fosnes Hansen's latest work from 2016 is a coming- of-age novel with a narrator who stands comparison with Holden Caulfield or David Copperfield.

Erik Fosnes Hansen has created a boyish narrative voice, at the same time heart-stoppingly nai ve and strikingly adult. It captures precisely the indeterminate state between unconditional trust and dawning scepticism in which the adolescent Sedd is caught, whilst his life reaches crisis point and everything falls apart. Jyllands-Posten, November 2017 Lobsters, with their hard shells, soft insides and basic existential vulnerability, are a mirror image of human beings, at once armour-plated and exposed; yet this novel also conveys a basic belief that it pays to do your best and not complain. Berlingske, November 2017
