20 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Denne romanen fra 1984 tar pulsen på tiden opp mot årtusenskiftet. Hovedtemaet er løgn og førførelse, i alle fasetter. Sentralt står språket som maktmiddel. I boken møter leseren en ung kvinne som kaller seg Greta. Om natten går hun omkring i bygatene. Leseren vet ikke hvem hun er, og alle som trekker for raske konklusjoner, tar feil. De menneskene hun tar kontakt med, forsvinner sporløst
