Summary
"Just before Christmas on a farm in Northern Norway, eighty-year-old Anna Neshov, matriarch of a troubled family, is taken gravely ill. Her three sons have been quietly immersed in their work: one an undertaker, one a window-dresser and the eldest running the family farm, but now they are forced to reunite for the first time in many years. Their personalities are as disparate as their careers, and tensions mount from the second they meet, climaxing over Christmas dinner when the matter of inheritance prompts the revelation of disturbing family secrets."--BOOK JACKET

This translation originally published: London: Harvill Secker, 2008. -An engrossing, dark comedy brought vividly to life through extraordinary characters. While perfectly in tune with their professions the Neshov sons as a family are little short of dysfunctional. This is a novel of a sense of belonging and the family farm defines this, with its power to draw people back to their roots
