A competition that goes completely out of control
Bella the Beaver loves living in her forest, but she doesn’t like all the animals that come out to graze here. Most of all that irritating pig, Hamilton. He always thinks he knows best! What’s more, he thinks all the wild animals in the forest are old-fashioned and boring.
During the past three years, Lene Wold has spent a considerable amount of time in Jordan with a man who has killed both his mother and one of his two daughters in order to restore his family’s honour. Wold has travelled around Jordan and interviewed a number of people about honour killing. The author portrays the man’s upbringing, culture and dilemmas that shaped him as a person and the choices he made. Wold’s other important source is Amina. This daughter spent several years in prison after the failed murder attempt in order to protect her from her own family. In Jordan, it is the women, the survivors of attempted honour killings, who are imprisoned – not the perpetrators.
