Jastrau’s romance with self-destruction will take him through all the circles of hell. The process will be anything but slow and quiet.
Havoc is one of the best novels to ever come out of Scandinavia. As discomforting as it is beautiful, it portrays the fall of a man, and it’s so hypnotically written that you want to fall with him.
—Karl Ove Knausgaard
The Ulysses as well as the Steppenwolf of Danish literature.
