Riktor doesn't like the way the policeman comes straight into the house without knocking. He doesn't like the arrogant way he observes his home.

He is accusing Riktor of something totally unexpected. Riktor doesn't have a clear conscience, but this is a crime he certainly didn't commit

The castle in the Pyrenees by Jostein Gaarder( Book )
4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 364 libraries worldwide
Overview: The author of the massively successful Sophie's World returns with a love story and a novel of ideas, exploring the place of human consciousness in the universe. Through five intense years in the 1970s, Steinn and Solrunn had a happy life together, then they suddenly parted ways, for reasons that are unclear to both. In the summer of 2007 they meet again on a balcony of an old wooden hotel by a fjord in western Norway. It is a place they both have fond memories from, and their meeting turns out to be fateful. But is it purely coincidental that they meet at that particular spot at that particular time? Over a couple of weeks that summer they write emails to each other, and it becomes clear that they have been living with very different interpretations of their shared past. This intimate love story of rediscovery explores the question: can science explain everything, or does some invisible force influence our lives?

Against nature : (the notebooks) by Tomas Espedal( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 52 libraries worldwide
"Against Nature, a companion volume to Espedal's earlier Against Art, is an examination of factory work, love's labour and the work of writing. Espedal dwells on the notion that working is required in order to live in compliance with society, but is this natural? And how can it be natural when he is drawn towards impossible things--impossible love, books, myths and taboos? He is drawn into the stories of Abélard and Héloïse, of young Marguerite Duras and her Chinese lover, and soon realizes that he, too, is turning into a person who must choose to live against nature."--Book jacket
Tramp, or, The art of living a wild and poetic life by Tomas Espedal( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 50 libraries worldwide
Gehen, um zu verstehen Ein Mann verlässt seine Frau, sein Kind, sein Haus. Er beschliesst zu gehen, das Leben eines Landstreichers zu führen, und macht sich auf den Weg, der ihn zu sich selbst bringen soll. Er scheitert, trinkt, beginnt von Neuem. Den Leser nimmt er mit auf diese delirierenden, existenziellen und besessenen Reisen zu Fuss von Norwegen durch Deutschland nach Frankreich, nach Griechenland, durch ein Europa der Kunst, der Mythen, der Städte. Bestimmt vom Rhythmus harten Gehens, von der Dunkelheit der Trunkenheit und der vollständigen physischen Erschöpfung, tritt er in Dialog mit Rousseau, Rimbaud, Satie, Giacometti, Heidegger und erlebt ein Abenteuer des Denkens: Mit nichts als sich selbst, ganz auf sich zurückgeworfen, was bleibt, wer ist man? Von der norwegischen Öffentlichkeit begeistert aufgenommen, ist Gehen ein hochkonzentrierter Text zwischen Roman, Essay und Reportage, den Paul Berf präzise und rhythmisch ins Deutsche übertragen hat
