Man får et godt indblik i hvordan junkier har det.. Men alle de over detaljerede sex-scener er ikk lige mig.
Desuden er det heller ikke sådan nogle bøger jeg normalt læser.

Nordkraft is a novel from 2002 by Jacob Ejersbo.
The novel is describing an environment in the northern part of Denmark among pushers and drugaddicts that normally isn't brought much into focus in danish literature.

The story takes place in Aalborg in the beginning of the 1990's. The book is devided in 3 parts that each has a main character. What the three persons have in common, is that they all live a life on the edge with drugs and among pushers, criminality, bad relationships and not caring parents. They find themself in a world that is difficult to tear oneself away from and in the struggle not everyone makes it.

Ejersbo's story is both realistic and well written. He doesn't spare the reader for the unpleasant details when he describes the life of the three existens - sucked into a grey world where the tough drug environment is all they know of.

The book were a huge succes and was in 2005 made into a film.

Taani noore kirjaniku Jakob Ejersbo loorberitega pärjatud ja Taani noorsoo hulgas juba kultuslikuks kujunenud debüütromaan Nordkraft (trükitud juba enam kui 60 000 eksemplari) on jutustus noortest, kes elavad mõlemal pool piiri: narkomaanidest ja diileritest, unistajatest, küünikutest ja pisisulidest. Romaani tegevus toimub 1990. aastate alguse Taani provintsilinnas Aalborgis ning oma loomutruuduse ja detailsusega kujutab endast omamoodi nüüdisaja sotsiaalrealistlikku põlvkonnakirjeldust.… (more)

Er en smule skuffet over Eksil, men har en fornemmelse af at bogen skal ses i sammenhaeng med de naeste to boeger i serien.
