Summary
A luminous novel, a police thriller, and the funniest book about war crimes and dementia you are likely to read. / Sheldon Horowitz, widowed and impatient and impertinent, has agreed, drudgingly, to leave New York and move in with Rhea, his granddaughter, and Lars, her new husband, in Norway: a country of blue and ice with one thousand Jews, not one of them a former Marine sniper in The Korean War turned watch repairman, who failed his only son by sending him to Vietnam to die. Not until now, anyway. Home alone one morning, Sheldon witnesses a dispute between the woman who lives upstairs and an aggressive stranger. When events turn dire, Sheldon seizes and shields the neighbor's young son from the violence, and they flee the scene. But old age and circumstances are altering Sheldon's experience of time and memory. Sheldon is haunted by dreams of his son Saul's life and by guilt over his death. As Sheldon and the boy look for a haven in an alien world, reality and fantasy, past and present weave together, forcing them forward, ever, to a wrenching moment of truth. Norwegian By Night introduces an ensemble of unforgettable characters: Sheldon and the boy, Rhea and Lars, a Balkan war criminal named Enver, and Sigrid and Petter who are the investigating officers dry-witted brilliantly. Each chase one another, their own demons, through the wilderness at the end of the world. -- Provided by publisher, taken from cover
