Pressestimmen

"A terrific thriller . . . a great story told in writing that is clear and powerful, detailed without being ornate. In a word, it is wonderful." -- Buffalo News

 

“Norwegian by Night shifts along like an inquisitive wind, with a voice so confident you would follow it into a leaning house. Generous with its wit, dazzling in its cultural and historical reach, Derek Miller’s novel is the kind of sweep-you-up tale a reader always wants but rarely finds, the kind where you stand in the bookstore reading the opening pages and whisper, This is the one.” — Leif Enger, author of Peace Like a River

 

“Have you ever lucked into one of those novels so taut and suspenseful that you can’t turn the pages fast enough, yet at the same time so magnificently written and psychologically incisive that you find yourself unable to turn those same pages slowly enough? Such novels are as rare as great comets. Norwegian by Night, I'm happy to report, is one. Make sure you’re in a comfortable spot when cracking this book; you won’t be putting it down for an obscenely long while.” — Jonathan Miles, author of Dear American Airlines

 

“This novel is ostensibly a Scandinavian thriller yet recalls Saul Bellow’s and Philip Roth’s more cerebral creations . . . A remarkably confident debut that is at once a rich psychological study, a political ¬parable that seems to be about America’s compulsion to intervene abroad, and a moving story of an old man’s last chance to slay his demons.” — Sunday Times (UK)

 

“Norwegian by Night is not just a great title, it’s also a soulful, humane, and sparklingly funny novel. Spend some time with Sheldon and company in the Scandinavian wilderness and you just might make peace with your god, your ghosts, and yourself.” — Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story

 

“Norwegian by Night is an outrageously intelligent thriller, and its philosopher-sniper hero, Sheldon Horowitz, is a character who’ll stay in your brain for decades. You might come for the guns and the ruckus, but by the last page, with your heart still pounding, you’ll be crying at all the goddamned beauty and love in the world.” — Patrick Somerville, author of This Bright River

Kurzbeschreibung

He will not admit it to Rhea and Lars - never, of course not - but Sheldon can't help but wonder what it is he's doing here...

Eighty-two years old, and recently widowed, Sheldon Horowitz has grudgingly moved to Oslo, with his grand-daughter and her Norwegian husband. An ex-Marine, he talks often to the ghosts of his past - the friends he lost in the Pacific and the son who followed him into the US Army, and to his death in Vietnam.

When Sheldon witnesses the murder of a woman in his apartment complex, he rescues her six-year-old son and decides to run. Pursued by both the Balkan gang responsible for the murder, and the Norwegian police, he has to rely on training from over half a century before to try and keep the boy safe. Against a strange and foreign landscape, this unlikely couple, who can't speak the same language, start to form a bond that may just save them both.

An extraordinary debut, featuring a memorable hero, Norwegian by Night is the last adventure of a man still trying to come to terms with the tragedies of his life. Compelling and sophisticated, it is both a chase through the woods thriller and an emotionally haunting novel about ageing and regret.

The aging, lonely cowboy plagued by memories of comrades lost has to fight his last fight to save a boys life. Only this time the cowboy is a WWII-veteran and the stage is not Arizona, but Norwegian woods. The story is good enough, a fast read.

Fantastic story. Sheldon Horowitz is an 82-year-old who was a heroic sniper in the Korean War, but his family thinks he was a clerk, and he doesn’t argue when they disparage his military service. This book has everything: love of family, the experience of aging and loss along with the insultingly low expectations we have of older people, and a first-rate adventure story.

Sheldon is angry. War and the mistreatment of Jews are two of his main issues. When he moves to Oslo (and part of my enjoyment was the author’s witty portrayal of Norwegians), he clashes with a pocket of Serbian war criminals to save a four-year-old boy. (The author is a senior fellow with the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research.) The only ding on the book is that some of the reminiscing and introspection goes on too long (the Viet Nam conflict imagined by Sheldon). This is the redemptive story of a heroic grandpa. I would compare it to City of Thieves by David Benioff for dark humor, high stakes, and compelling characters. Highly recommended.

I liked "Norwegian by Night", especially because I have been in Norway many times and recognized typical "norsk" things throughout the story that made me laugh (the police officers and their conversations are just hilarious).
The story is a bit strange with many flashbacks that sometimes make it hard to follow the storyline. There could be readers who are disappointed with that.
That said, I liked it!

Unfortunately I found the novel rather boring. It is full of stereotypes and quite predictable. I found the narration and the author's writing style very tiring. Wouldn't recommend it.
