If you ask people in Oslo what they like best about the city, they answer that it only takes 20 minutes to get out in Nordmarka. Similarly with magnificent books about Norway: There are glossy prospect pictures of landscapes; usually without people who can disturb the idyll. Nor does NAF's road book tell about the people – it goes to ancient monuments and sights.
Therefore, this book constitutes, E 6. A journey through the life of Norwegians, a welcome change: It is primarily about the people you can meet around Norway, and only secondarily about their things. The frame is a car journey from Svinesund to Kirkenes. Journalist Trude Lorentzen and photographer Karin Beate Nøsterud have driven the 2672 kilometers in a flame-painted Lada – quite smart, because with such a donation you slip unnoticed into most environments in Norway.
Life (and death) along the way
In addition to small fact columns that run parallel to the text, we get to know in more detail what is being done to secure the roads (so that people do not die, and so that animals do not die or injure cars and people); suicide drivers who choose a trailer like Endlösung (something "Zero Vision" can do little with); about why there is a queue; about what it is like to work in a toll booth; or what it is like to clear the road over the mountain for snow, or "dig" (blast) tunnel.
