There is No EndEriksen, Endre Lund: Det tar ikke slutt
It is March 1999 and NATO is about to bomb Yugoslavia. Brage Olsen is the socialist party’s representative in Norwegian Parliament, and he voted in favour of the bombing. But did he make the right choice?
Brage wants so much to do the right thing, but he has a personal involvement in the conflict. Figures from his childhood - the Norwegian Serb Alex and the Kosovo Albanian Ismail - reappear in his life and his conscience is troubled.
The writer takes us down the corridors of power where decisions are taken, sometimes on shaky grounds. There is No End is about the need for us to commit ourselves, and it shows how difficult it is to take sides.
