Describe your desk
My desk usually takes the form of a table in a coffee shop. My favorite one at the moment is Starbucks, but I've been seen writing at pretty much every local coffee shop in Trondheim. My current project "Trouble in Trondheim: Bikers and Gangsters" was also written in St. Petersburg, Kristiansand and Tallinn.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small neighbourhood outside the city of Kristiandsand, Norway. I think, if anything, it influenced my writing in such a way that I always wanted to write in order to get away from reality, as nothing ever happened where I was living. As I have grown older, I still write as a means of escape, though realism in terms of descriptions and characters have penetrated my writing more.
Kurt Hammer is in trouble. His wife and infant have been found brutally murdered, and Hammer has to leave the past behind.
At the same time, a menace is killing seemingly innocent victims in the city of Trondheim, and the police are clueless. Kurt Hammer must save the day.
