Award-winning Norwegian novelist Dag Solstad at Scandinavia House with author Rebecca Dinerstein for a book talk on his newest novel, an existential murder mystery titled Professor Andersen’s Night. On Christmas Eve, 55-year-old professor Pål Andersen sits alone in his living room, drinking coffee and cognac and lost in a train of thought, when he glances out the window and sees a man strangling a woman across the street. Paralyzed by indecision, he finds himself unable to call the police or even his friends. Over the night that follows, he instead finds himself obsessing about the murderer’s whereabouts — until he later finds himself face-to-face with the killer himself.
