About the book
So many things are weird about Norwegian people: they go skiing in the middle of the city, take their holidays in cabins with neither water nor electricity, lit candles to make things koselig and have strange names like Odd and Bored. Lorelou, a French woman in her mid-20s from Provence region gets a job in Oslo, Norway. She is not too inspired by this Nordic country. Are Norwegian people as cold as their weather? She has one year to figure out whether she wants to live there for good and make Norway her home.
