    The monarchy is a powerful symbol, though, and for many, a big part of their identity as a citizen of their kingdom. Or queendom.

    It depends on who’s on the throne, though. In Norway, we’ve been fortunate to have good people since our independence in 1905. During the nazi occupation, the King was a strong source of inspiration for the resistance movement. And they have not been as far separated from the public as the British royal house has been.

    I suspect that it would change if our poor, deluded princess somehow ended up on the throne. Fortunately, she’s not first in line. Her brother is, and then his two children.

    Searching Amazon for “Gunnar Staalesen”, there are quite a few Varg Veum books translated to English.

    But cold is not the primary weather one associates with Bergen. Rain is. The town is pretty famous for it. Aside from that, Staalesen’s books make a point of describing the town in great detail, as if it’s a character in its own right.

    The copyright year is 1975, the same year that Jaws came out.
