Throughout history, the soul has been regarded as the core of the human being and as an expression of the individual’s personality. Most people also feel they have one, although it is hard to explain what the soul exactly is. This is the aim of this book. By following the stages of the fateful drama of the soul from antiquity to present day, the book examines what significance it still may have in the 21st Century.

Ulv i det norske kulturlandskapet
Published by Res Publica, 2021
This work of literary nonfiction, eco-literature, explores the role wolves have played in Norwegian cultural history, drawing on insights from the environmental humanities. From Norse mythology and the Viking Age, it traces human–wolf relations through medieval superstition to the systematic wolf persecution of the nineteenth century, when wolves were almost driven to extinction, and finally to the current situation, where wolves stand a chance of recovery but are kept endangered through legal and illegal hunting. The contrast between cultural landscapes and old-growth forest is thrown into sharp relief. Wolves are a keystone species and have become a flagship species for restoration and rewilding.More…

Published by Kagge Forlag, 2019
Psychopaths are everywhere. You might find one amongst your closest family members, your friend group or even in the workplace. Although they might all act in different ways, psychopaths will always have one thing in common: you can never trust them. They play by their own rules, and have little, if any, empathy with those affected. Many of those caught in a psychopath’s web require several years to return to their normal lives.More…

And when they come out the other side, a surprise is waiting for them…
THE DINOSAUR BUNCH (2) THE SWIMMING COMPETITION
Rasmus Rex is visiting the beach with his family and his best friend, Trym. Rasmus isn’t such a good swimmer, so when his big brother Robin challenges Rasmus and Trym to a swimming competition, it can’t possibly go well.

Close-up of a Genius – presents a portrait that is so intimate, refreshingly honest and revealing that the artist emerges from the pages. The Norwegian daily Dagbladet wrote in 2004: “Spanning one hundred and fifty pages, it may well be the best biography ever written in Norwegian.
