6 DANISH LITERARY MAGAZINE NEWS DENM Fiction Everyday dramas and families particularly of the dysfunctional variety feature largely in this spring s crop of new fiction. The Danish family from the 1950s in Suz anne Brøgger s novel Til T (To T) can t so much as manage to go for a picnic in the woods or serve tea for Granma and Grandpa when they come round, and the roles of parents and children are totally reversed in a book which is as much a cultural critique as it is a family drama (see also p. 18). Erling Jepsen 4 too tackles family secrets, repressed feelings and parental ineptitude in Min sønderjyske farm (Out of Jutland), the story of young Allan, who breeds rabbits and struggles to come to terms with his parentage not least on the paternal side (see also p. 20). The family theme is also taken lovingly in hand by Katrine Marie Guldager in Den ny tid (The New Age), the third volume in her chronicle of several generations of a family from the Danish provincial town of Køge. Guldager s trilogy began with the novel Ulven (The Wolf) and continued with Lille hjerte (Little Heart) which was acclaimed by one ecstatic critic as something quite unique in modern Danish literature. Dennis Gade Kofod puts a twist on the classic kitchen sink drama in his novel Genfærd (Ghost) by taking his grieving central character into the realms of magic and the absurd: Frederik checks in to a hotel a place with a strange and mysterious air about it, fraught with bewildering secrets and baffling family relationships. Minna, the woman in Dorthe Nors s romantic (tragi-)comedy Minna mangler et øvelokale (Minna Needs a Rehearsal Room) also finds life pretty bewildering. Here we are introduced to a woman who is trying to get back on her feet and reconcile herself to

7 NEWS FROM DENMARK FROM ARK the things she feels are missing in her life such as a rehearsal room in which to compose her paper sonatas in peace, a child (but her boyfriend just broke up with her) and, generally speaking, a reason for living. Poet Niels Frank makes his fictional debut with Nellies bog (Nellie s Book), an account of a family visit to the United States in which he describes the things his fictional character Nellie experiences along the way in a mixture of modern and antiquated language, of Danish, American and dialect. Svend Aage Madsen experiments with style and form in his latest novel Pigen i cementblanderen (The Girl in the Cement Mixer), in which a small town in the Danish provinces provides the setting for a mysterious suicide, a murky family history and a succession of crimes, some past, some present and some invented elements used in these stories to explore the question of when a crime is really a crime. There is no shortage of crimes of a clearer, more tangible sort in Simon Pasternak s Dødszoner (Death Zones), set in White Russia in July 1943, at the time of the German massacre of civilians there. Two boyhood friends, Manfred and Heinrich, are serving with the German army. Manfred thrives in the moral morass, while Heinrich finds it harder to steer a course through the Nazi system and still maintain his reason and his honour. Both of them become caught up in the investigation of the murder of SS General Felix Steiner, Manfred s mentor; and Heinrich embarks on a journey into the dark heart of an impenetrable moral wasteland. Simon Pasternak has previously, together with his fellow author Christian Dorph, written three crime thrillers Om et øjeblik i himlen (In a Moment in Heaven), Afgrundens rand (Edge of the Abyss) and Jeg er ikke her (I m Not Here). Crime fiction Although malicious tongues would have it that the crime wave is starting to subside, there is no lack of new crime novels on the Danish market. 5

8 DANISH LITERARY MAGAZINE Leif Davidsen has won a host of prizes for his thrillers and since 1984, when his first novel appeared, his books have been translated into fifteen languages. Now comes a new thriller from Davidsen s hand, Patriarkens hændelige død (The Accidental Death of the Patriarch). The novel is set in Russia, in Putin s own, very unique, version of a democracy. In Moscow two deaths occur on the same day: the Patriarch of all Russia passes away peacefully in his sleep and shortly afterwards a Dane, Gabriel Lassen, is beaten to death in a back court. On the surface there is no connection between these two deaths but back in Denmark Gabriel s twin brother comes by information that seems to point the other way. The action in Morten Hesseldahl s latest crime novel, his fourth, also takes place in a number of different countries. In En tid til at dø (A Time to Die) a disgraced Danish army chaplain comes home from the war in Afghanistan to a half empty bedsit, an uncertain future and, not least, to his brother, who has his life all mapped out. He also has distinctly shady plans, though, of intervening in a crisis in the Central African country of Abu Sidre. The former chaplain becomes caught up in this game of intrigue, much against his will, when his brother disappears and a blonde assassin shows up on a remote Danish island. There is a fourth novel too from 6 Steffen Jacobsen Trofæ (Trophy), which follows the fortunes of Elizabeth Caspersen, the wealthy Danish heiress to a worldwide industrial empire. In her late father s safe Elizabeth finds a DVD of a cynical, well-organised manhunt which culminates in the death of a young man. She hires an ex-soldier to identify both victim and executioner, only for him also to become embroiled in a manhunt one in which he ends up as the prey. In the new novel from Robert Zola Christensen it is the central character, scientist Theis, whose is dispatched on a hunt. Is i blodet (Ice in the Blood) is a scientific crime novel which depicts the in-fighting between researchers in Greenland and Alaska, where Theis is faced with the mass death of the entire crew of a Greenland research and a missing girlfriend whom he absolutely has to find. Newcomer Jakob Melander on the other hand, stays within the bounds of Denmark in Øjesten (The House that Jack Built). Melander achieved the distinction of having this, his first novel, sold to several countries even before it appeared in Denmark. Øjesten is a critically acclaimed crime novel from the streets of Copenhagen, where a macabre murder shocks the whole city. This killing, later to become known as the Sandman case, proves to be linked to events that took place during the Second World War. Øjesten is the first volume in a projected series featuring Detective-Sergeant Lars Winkler (see also Recently Sold). Spring also sees the appearance of new titles on the historical crime front, including two new titles from Martin Jensen namely volumes four and five in his series on Winston, Halfdan and Alfilda, snoops and henchmen to King Canute. These latest two books in Jensen s series set in England during Viking times are entitled Den tredje mønt (The Third Coin) and Sværdets bid (Sword Edge). See also Books in Brief for more information on new Danish crime fiction. Children s books A number of Denmark s best known and most respected writers of adult fiction have also turned their hands to children s books, among them Katrine Marie Guldager who has just published two new books in her series on Little Miss Fine Frøken Fine skal til fødselsdag (Little Miss Fine Goes to a Birthday Party) and Frøken Fine har været på ferie (Little Miss Fine s Holiday). Both of these concern her relationship with her best friend Bitte, which is not always quite the way Little Miss Fine would like it to be. These books are ideal for reading aloud or as early readers.

9 NEWS FROM DENMARK Jens Christian Grøndahl has also written a children s book, his very first, entitled Med bedstemor i tidens labyrinth (Travelling with Granny through the Maze of Time) (see also Books in Brief), while Ida Jessen & Hanne Bartholin continues their successful collaboration with the fourth book in their picture-book series for the very young about Carl the elephant Da Carl havde det sjovt (When Carl Had Fun). In the Carl books Jessen and Bartholin present stories of little everyday dramas as they are experienced by the young readers themselves. In this latest title Carl is home alone with his Dad. They are going to have a lovely day together, just the two of them, but first Dad has to do some work, read the paper, talk on the phone and do the shopping... Ubiquitous, awardwinning author Jakob Martin Strid (see also Literary prizes in this issue) has also taken elephants as his subject, in his picture books about Mimbo Jimbo. In the latest title in this series Mimbo Jumbo i Norge (Mimbo Jimbo in Norway) the little blue elephant and his friend Mimbo Jumbo the hippo, go to visit a very nice little girl called Nina, who lives in Norway. Renée Toft Simonsen has previously written books for older children, including the popular Karla series. Just out from her is a new book for the very small, Tiberius Tudefjæs laver muskler (Tiberius Cry-baby Muscle-builder) in which Tiberius runs into trouble at school when some of the big boys threaten to beat him up. But how is he to defend himself when he doesn t have any muscles? Among this spring s offerings for older readers we find PSSST!, a graphic novel for girls in their tweens which looks at the subject of identity from various angles: Who am I? Why am I the way I am? What do I want to do with my life? In twelve independent chapters Annette Herzog & Katrine Clante introduce the reader to twelve-year-old Viola and her thoughts and ideas on life, death, friends, family, loneliness, personal appearance and popularity. In the Young Adult category there is a stark and powerful first novel from Conr ad Fields In Minusmand (Minus Man) he tells the story of two friends, Tobias and Ali who find themselves one day on opposite sides in a violent conflict. In Minusmand Fields has written a tale about identity, friendship and love and about an underclass that is seldom addressed in fiction. In Komatøs (Coma Chick), a novel for older teenagers, Ronnie Andersen also gets to grips with the grimmer side of life. Fourteen-year-old Maj leads a nomadic existence with her mother, who has a serious drink problem. Maj is so sick and tired of her life that when she falls into ice-cold water she cannot find the strength to fight for it and ends up in a coma. Suzanne Brøgger is published by Gyldendal.

10 DANISH LITERARY MAGAZINE Being human May 5th 2013 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Danish theologian, philosopher and writer Søren Aabye Kierkegaard. The bicentennial will be celebrated all over the world, not least in Denmark where Siri Hustvedt, Slavoj Žižek and Gianni Vattimo will be among the speakers at a major international conference. 8

11 Søren Aabye Kierkegaard The Great thing is not to be This or That; but to be oneself, and this any Man can do, if he so wishes Søren Kierkegaard, Enten-Eller (Either-Or) What is a human being? And how does one become oneself? These are just a couple of the existential philosophical questions that occupied Søren Kierkegaard. According to him, to become who we are we have to actively do something. The responsibility rests with us. And the work of becoming the person we want to be should be done with passion. Kierkegaard tries to get us to think about who we are. He tries to show us what to do if we don t like the individual we perceive, to save us from simply adopting the image of the person others think we should be. But this is a responsibility from which we tend to flee. Then as now. And it is, among other things, his way of wrestling with these problems that makes Søren Kierkegaard such a classic and eternally relevant thinker. In his writings he homes in on points that never cease to be topical, as can be seen from the interest in his work, which may not have had such a huge impact in his own day, but which has gradually built up a strong and stable following. Søren Kierkegaard s philosophy of existence, which places the individual at the centre of things, has been the inspiration for much of modern European existentialist thinking for Sartre, Camus, Heidegger, Adorno, Barth and Bultmann. Kierkegaard himself was influenced by the German idealists Kant, Hegel and Schopenhauer as well as by Plato, Socrates and the whole of the ancient school of idealism. Søren Aabye Kierkegaard died on November 11 th His was a short life, but one in which he managed to produce an impressive number of works, including Enten-Eller (Either-Or) (1843), Philosophiske Smuler (Philisophical Fragments) (1844), Begrebet Angest (The Concept of Anxiety) (1844), Kjerlighedens Gjerninger (Works of Love) (1847) and Sygdommen til Døden (The Sickness unto Death) (1849). Since 1994 Gads Forlag has been working with the Danish Søren Kierkegaard Research Centre on an edition of his collected works. This has now been completed all fifty-five volumes of it and the finished work will be presented to the University of Copenhagen as part of the bicentennial celebrations. Elsewhere in the world fresh shoots are also springing from the Kierkegaardian loam, with translations under way in the following languages: English, French, Dutch, Italian, Chinese, Korean, Latvian, Portugese, Rumanian, Spanish, Czech, German and Hungarian. The English, French and German projects are concentrating on the translation of all of Kierkegaard s journals, notebooks and miscellaneous papers; the Spanish project is devoted to his published works; elsewhere it is a matter of translations of individual works.

12 DANISH LITERARY MAGAZINE I came by Regine Olsen s letters only through a stroke of pure luck. No one, publically or in academic circles, knew they existed. But after a talk I had given on Søren Kierkegaard an elderly couple came up to me and asked if I was also interested in his one-time fiancée, Regine, because they had a bundle of letters belonging to her correspondence between her and her sister Cornelia during the years 1855 to 1860, when Regine was living in the Danish West Indies with her husband. It is hard to underestimate exactly how much Regine meant to Kierkegaard. Her significance to his life and his work is far greater than first imagined. He dedicates his entire body of work to his father and to Regine, the person who really brings out the writer in him and the great inspiration for an untold number of his stories about love - both consummated and unconsummated. And it was Regine, not least, who gave him insight into the nature of erotic love. The bond between Kierkegaard and Regine was very close. Their fascinating love story is proof that Platonic love can be every bit as intense as sexual love. They were never able to break free of one another, even though they were only officially engaged for a year. Regine remains an engima in his life, one to which he continually returns, analyzing and interpreting it. He breaks off the engagement in 1841 and for the next fourteen years, until she leaves for the Danish West Indies, they do not speak. Although they meet often. They have their regular routes on which their paths wordlessly cross. On the day of her departure Regine seeks out Kierkegaard in the street and blesses him: a moving scene in the heart of Copenhagen, in which the man of many words is speechless, in which the woman takes the initiative, in which the non-theologian blesses the theologian. Little attention is paid by scholars to Regine after the point when Kierkegaard breaks off their engagement, and hardly any at all from the time of his death, but she herself does not die until 1904, so she lives to see the modern world. Her letters have afforded me the unique opportunity to say something about her as an independent woman. What sort of person is she? What is going on in her mind? It surprised me to find her so open in her letters, although she had to choose her words very carefully since letters would have been passed round the whole family back then. She has often been presented as a pretty little china doll, a mere ornament, but her letters show her to be a reflective, amusing individual with her own range of emotions, her own dreams, opinions and riddles. Regines gåde (The Mystery of Regine) is a long meditation on the nature of love. On loving someone who is dead and gone, on being limited in the ways one can express one s love. There is a passion and a spirit in these letters that has moved me; a search for an explanation, for answers to existential relationships, to one s relationship with oneself, with God, with death and with this man Kierkegaard. In Regine s letters we are presented with an individual of great sensibility and a refreshing streak of self-irony. Joakim Garff, (born 1960), scholar and writer, has previously written the critically acclaimed biography of Søren Kierkegaard, SAK, which has been translated into a number of languages. See also Books in Brief. A meditatio the nature o 10

14 ooks i DANISH LITERARY MAGAZINE A Modern Robinsonade Multi-narrative novel about the artistic temperament A blackbird trills a liquid song and all the living creatures in the world fall into a trance. This is the starting point for the latest book from Peter Adolphsen, in which every human being and every animal is so it seems caught in the midst of whatever move they were making when the world came to a halt. Each one repeats this same action again and again, as if in a loop, all except Mark. He is one of the survivors who does not loop and can do as he pleases: indulge himself, both materially and sexually. But he gradually grows bored with this and as time goes on he becomes more and more interested in what actually happened when the blackbird trilled its song - and in finding other survivors. In År 9 efter Loopet (Year 9 After the Loop) Peter Adolphsen (born 1972) has written an off-beat, ultra-modern Robinsonade garnished with women, weapons and a sprinkling of quantum physics. Adolphsen made his literary debut in 1996 with the critically acclaimed Små historier (Small Stories) and followed this up in 2000 with Små historier 2 (Small Stories 2) and in 2007 with En million historier (A Million Stories). He has also published two novels, Brummstein (2003) and Machine (2006). A body of work that speaks of remarkable growth and development. So wrote Weekendavisen s reviewer in 2009 of Julia Butschkow s novel Apropos Opa, and prophesied a sure and solid place for Butschkow on the literary heights. In her latest work, Aber dabei, she picks up the threads of her breakthrough novel in an account of mental illness and a fragile artistic temperament narrated by the various people associated with a senior consultant on a psychiatric unit in Copenhagen. The consultant cares for the sick while his wife stays home and dreams of writing. But she is short on subject matter. And so she is forever asking her husband about his patients e.g. about the lawyer who talks nonstop and propositions both staff and fellow patients. Julia Butschkow (born 1978) published her first work, the poetry collection Lykkekomplex (The Happiness Complex), in 1997, but her real breakthrough came in 2009 with the novel Apropos Opa, which was nominated for the Danmarks Radio Fiction Prize. More recently she has published the collection of short stories Der er ingen bjerge i Danmark (There Are No Mountains in Denmark) (2011).

15 n brief BOOKS IN BRIEF Essays from the author of Lucca Love and destiny According to the French newspaper Le Monde Jens Christian Grøndahl is one of the greatest living Danish writers. Grøndahl s works including the novels Lucca (1998), Et andet lys (An Altered Light) (2002) and Før vi siger farvel (Before We say Goodbye) (2012) - have been published in more than thirty countries. Now comes a new book from Jens Christian Grøndahl, a collection of essays on art and literature where he considers the links between life and work, between tradition and modernity, referring in the process to Saul Bellow, Marcel Proust, Odysseus, Patrick Modiano and Wim Wenders. Jens Christian Grøndahl (born 1959) published his first book in In the years since then he has produced almost a score of titles within various genres. In 2013 he will be venturing into what is, for him, totally new territory when he makes his debut as a children s writer with a read-aloud book for children of early primary school age. In Med bedstemor i tidens labyrint (Travelling with Granny through the Maze of Time) we are introduced to Nina, a little girl who travels back through time with her grandmother to Copenhagen at the time of the Second World War. Illustrated by Lars Gabel. A superb spring read, A fascinating, beautifully written book. So said the press of Morten Brask s fictional biography of one of the world s greatest geniuses, William Sidi s perfekte liv (The Perfect Life of William Sidi), published in Now comes a new novel from Brask s hand, this time a realistic contemporary novel about the beginnings of love and its end, about living with both intense happiness and deep sorrow and about making a decision, leaving the world behind and starting afresh. That is what the first-person narrator of Brask s En pige og en dreng (A Girl And A Boy) is destined to do when he loses his young twins after years of loving and battling with his darling Maya. He does not share her burning desire to have children and build a family and this eventually casts a shadow over their love for one another until the day when the children, a boy and a girl, are born. Morten Brask (born 1970) has written seven books, including three works of fiction. He made his debut as a writer of fiction in 2007 with the novel Havet i Theresienstadt (The Sea in Theresienstadt) (2007) which was nominated for the Prix du Roman Fnac in B rask Morten En pige og en dreng R O M A N P O L I T I K E N S F O R L A G Jens Christian Grøndahl Den sibiriske måne (The Siberian Moon), Lindhardt og Ringhof 2013, 160 pp. Previous titles sold to: More than thirty countries.

16 ooks i DANISH LITERARY MAGAZINE 3 x Kierkegaard 2013 sees the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Danish philosopher and writer Søren Aabye Kierkegaard. Several books are being published to mark the bicentennial (see also p in this magazine). Joakim Garff, scholar and author of a major Kierkegaard biography from 2000, SAK Søren Aaby Kierkegaard. En biografi (SAK Søren Aabye Kierkegaard. A Biography) has just published a book about Regine Olsen, the woman to whom Kierkegaard was at one time engaged. Garff has come into possession of over a hundred hitherto unknown letters written by Regine during her years in the West Indies with her husband Johan Frederik Schlegel when he was Governor-General out there. These letters, which form the basis for his new book, Regines gåde (The Mystery of Regine), show her to be a woman of flesh and blood, opinions and desires, and shed fresh light on one of the most puzzling love affairs in Danish history. In his fictional biography of Søren Kierkegaard, Stig Dalager paints an existential, psychological picture of the world-renowned philosopher on his deathbed, looking back on his life and on those people who have touched it, while Oscar K. (see also p in this magazine) presents his own unique and utterly subjective view of Søren Kierkegaard s life in an illustrated novel which revolves around the central themes of death and sex, mother and father fixations, normality and absurdity, and in which the Danish philosopher is brought into the present by a young female quantum physicist.

17 n brief BOOKS IN BRIEF Forbidden Love first aggression and foremost When and why did we become afraid of aggression? An excellent, and very big question, and one which Jesper Juul, author of Dit kompetente barn (Your Competent Child), asks himself in his new book Aggression. Et nyt og farligt tabu? (Aggression. A New and Dangerous Taboo?). Juul focuses specifically on pre-school children and school children, an alarming number of whom are being sent from nurseries and schools to all manner of therapists simply for expressing anger or frustration. And yet no research to speak of is being conducted into the question of aggression. It is our own personal perception of what constitutes over-aggressive and hence unacceptable - behaviour that is changing; a development which, according to long-time family therapist Jesper Juul, does great damage, both psychologically and socially, to our children. Because, if we do not teach them to relate to and recognise their own aggressive tendencies and differentiate between the constructive and the destructive sorts while they are still young, they will be even more aggressive and selfdestructive in their teens. Jan Sonnergaard laid down several rules for himself when writing his latest book. One was that he had to stay for at least three months in each of the places in which his stories were set and finish them on location. Another was that he had to be completely familiar with every spot mentioned in the stories, from the seediest brothel to the most expensive Michelin-starred restaurant. Out of this has come a book that deals, first and foremost with love, and not just with romance and being in love, but with jealousy and violence, charity and altruism, infidelity and betrayal. Jan Sonnergaard (born 1963) made his major breakthrough in 1997 with the short story collection Radiator, which won him the status of leading spokesman for the new raw Nineties realism. He went on to complete a trilogy of short story collections with Sidste søndag i oktober (Last Sunday in October) (2000) and Jeg er stadig bange for Caspar Michael Petersen (I m Still Afraid of Caspar Michael Petersen) (2003). In 2009 Jan Sonnergaard published his first novel, Om atomkrigens betydning for Vilhelm Funks ungdom (On the Significance of Nuclear War on Vilhelm Funk s Youth). Jesper Juul so großartige neue Erzählungssammlung von alice Munro, einer der bedeutendsten autorinnen der gegenwart. himmel und hölle: neun geschichten, scheinbar alltäglich-harmlos wie ein Kinderspiel und doch von beklemmender abgründigkeit. immer sind es verstrickungen des gefühls, hr. en e- Jesper Juul aggression aggression warum sie für uns und unsere Kinder notwendig ist die seltsamen, oft komischen Sehnsüchte des menschlichen herzens und die leisen Katastrophen, die Munro mit ihrem feinen gehör für zwischenmenschliche Misstöne aufspürt. und fast immer sind es die leben von Frauen, die, wie in einem vexierspiegel verschiedenen Blickwinkeln ausgesetzt, in den widersprüchlichen Möglichkeiten ihres Schicksals erkundet werden wie in der geschichte mit dem vielsagenden Titel hasst er mich, mag er mich, liebt er mich, hochzeit von dem seltsamen Schicksal einer ältlichen hausangestellten, die, von zwei biestigen Teenagern auf fatale weise in die irre geschickt, dank ihrer willenskraft ihrem verkümmerten dasein eine höchst überraschende wendung zu geben vermag.

18 ooks i DANISH LITERARY MAGAZINE Danish crime series It s good to see new titles this spring from a number of Danish crime writers, all adding to their respective series with style and assurance. Here we have, for example, Lene Kaaberbøl, presenting the second volume of her projected trilogy on the Cadaver Doctor, entitled Det levende kød (Living Flesh). In a backyard in the small French provincial town of Varbourg a grisly discovery is made: the badly mutilated body of a young Italian prostitute. But Madeleine Karno, the cadaver doctor s assistant, does not buy the yellow press s conjectures that a new Jack the Ripper is at work. She does not believe that the mutilation of the victim was entirely random with the greatest precision someone has removed the young woman s womb and the unborn baby she had been carrying. Susanne Staun, on the other hand, concerns herself with a more modern, but no less grim world in the third volume in her series on forensic pathologist Maria Krause whose friend and colleague, Little John, has just hung himself. Or did he? Was it an accident? Or murder? Or suicide? The answer is to be found in Helt til grænsen (To The Limit), the sequel to Døderummet (The Death Room) (2010) which won the Harald Mogensen Prize for best crime novel of the year and Lene Kaaberbøl Det levende kød (Living Flesh), Modtryk 2013, 300 pp. Previous titles sold to: More than twenty countries.

19 n brief BOOKS IN BRIEF Hilsen fra Rexville (Greetings From Rexville) (2011). There is a new title, too, from Jussi Adler-Olsen, who has reached volume five of his series on Department Q and Detective Inspector Carl Mørck. Marco Effekten (The Marco Effect) follows the fortunes of Marco, a young boy led into a life of crime at an early age by his Uncle Zola, a man regarded in many circles as highly undesirable. As Department Q is drawn deeper and deeper into the investigation of Zola, Carl Mørck finds himself caught up in a web of crime and corruption that stretches all the way from the Danish Ministry of Justice to Africa. Eget ansvar (At Your Own Risk) is the title of Elsebeth Egholm s seventh crime novel featuring journalist Dicte. This time, however, Dicte is not working alone. She is helped by the central character of Egholm s last two thrillers, De tre hundes nat (Three Dog Night) (2011) and De døde sjæles nat (Dead Souls), namely Peter Boultrup, the son whom Dicte s Jehova s Witness parents forced her to give up for adoption when he was born. The relationship between these two has never been easy, but when Dicte s daughter Rose Peter s half-sister is kidnapped, they both set out to find her, each working from their own angle jussi adler-olsen MARCO EFFEKTEN jussi Suveræn Politiinspektør Bent Isager-Nielsen Endnu et pletskud Tidligere chefpolitiinspektør Per Larsen adler-olsen Jussi Adler-Olsen Ekstra Bladet JydskeVestkysten Dagbladenes Bureau Jyllands-Posten Frederiksborg Amts Avis til Ekstra Bladet til Ekstra Bladet MARCO EFFEKTEN MAT COVER.

20 DANISH LITERARY MAGAZINE Family drama and cultural critique A picnic on a warm summer day. A set of grandparents coming for tea. To most people these might seem like pretty straightforward situations. But not for the family in Suzanne Brøgger s latest book Til T (To T). 18 The adults can t push themselves to do anything, neither to get themselves out of the house nor to find enough tea-cups and don t even talk about the tea, which they need to go out and buy because they don t have any. And when are they supposed to find the time to commit suicide (mother) or go off to Asia and save the world (stepfather)? The family s three children stand in the wings, observing the parents whom they are far too young to look after, although they do their very best to, and so nothing happens. They never do go on that picnic, or make that tea. These two little, insignificant but very concrete incidents take place one summer in 1958, and in Suzanne Brøgger s hands they are developed into an associative train of thought which in turn evolves into a fable, one that puts the whole ghastly set-up at a humorous, allegorical distance. Because the members of this family are all named after characters from the tales of Winnie-the-Pooh although
