Lennart takes a job as a teacher in a small town in the far north of Sweden. He marries the librarian Elisabeth, who is killed in an accident shortly afterwards. Lennart becomes a complete loner, spending his days on a prehistoric burial mound and at some point giving up his job. Only occasionally does he return to the schoolhouse – by night, pacing its halls like a gentle ghost seeking his lost life.
Klaus Böldl writes with a firm hand about desire, memory and the passing of time – full of laconic humour and high tension. His prose tears the veil of reality in two, to reveal the hidden secret of life itself.
