Dagens citat

"So what we have is 157 dark, scary and unbelievably funny pages, much of which is narrated by a man hiding under his own bed. That might not scream 'rock' at first blush, but the novel is infused, in its own way and very much on its own terms, with music. Emil is a borderline-obsessive jazz fan who takes maybe a little too much pleasure in his Miles Davis collection; Havard's musical tastes run toward playing Elvis Presley's 'Hound Dog' ad nauseum and, at one point, buying a ukulele for no discernible reason. Kraftwerk's paranoiac 'Computer World' makes a brief appearance, too, at just the right claustrophobic time."
