Author(s): Erlend Loe
Kurt is a truck driver. He's been a truck driver for many years. Almost ever since he was a boy. He's always been a very kind man, until...One day Kurt rescues a man who sleepwalks off the pier, and he gets rewarded with a diamond as big as a football. But what use is a diamond? Kurt sells it and gets 50 million dollars. With all that money, it is perhaps not surprising that Kurt turns evil.
"Kurt is an adult, but he behaves like a two-year old. This book is absurdly funny. It's dry and silly." - Julia Marshall, publisher
