Insects are everywhere — in forest and meadows, in streams and parks. They live at an altitude of eighteen thousand feet, in the deepest caves, in baptismal fonts, inside computers and in a walrus’s nostrils. For every person on Earth there are 200 million insects. Yet their numbers are dwindling. While the number of people has doubled over the past 40 years, the number of individual insects has decreased by half. Without insects, people and animals would die.

The First Mystery is popular science, history of science, storytelling and public education at its best. Charming, entertaining, fun, accessible, inclusive and knowledgeable.

Shark Drunk. The Art of Catching a Large Shark from a Tiny Rubber Dinghy in a Big Ocean through Four Seasons (Havboka)

Rights: Copenhagen Literary Agency | |

A book about a mission, the famous Lofoten islands and the art of catching a shark from a tiny rubber dinghy. More than anything: It is a book about the ocean. With Shark Drunk, Morten Strøksnes has written a award-winning and superbly enjoyable book, full of knowledge, enthusiasm and excitement. Strøksnes attempts to acquire the ocean’s swaying language through uses of poetry, science, history, ecology, fiction, mythology – or the almost obsolete language older local fishermen still use to describe the sea. The result is a salty and entertaining book.
