Just have to finish my current non-list reading (The Love Department -- totally lovely) and then I'm on to this!

This was a quick and very enjoyable read. I literally laughed out loud quite often. This man and his hare have many zany adventures and the whole thing feels thoroughly Scandinavian. Something about mankind, nature, and alcohol? Anyway, a nice change from some of the usual gloomy 1001 books.

Picking this one up soon as I am reading it for a Eurovision challenge as well.

Finished reading, counted for this group read and as my Finland read for Eurovisionathon.
It was bizarrely entertaining and quirky, with naked helicopter pilots and a night of drinking moonshine in a river as a forest fire burns around you (all of which are taken as totally matter of fact events by our main character). And of course the hare, a lovely character in his own right.
