Torkild may be forty, but he’s not past it, even though he is still in thrall to the Faeroe, a vicious, big-time crook from the Faroe Islands. And even though his own little gang of faithful buddies has a depressing tendency to fail at the jobs he plans for them.

The four no-goods with their traumatic childhood memories have never really grown up, but their lives change when at last they find a hang-out – a deserted forest inn – where they are able to lead a different kind of life, the kind other people lead, and indeed paid for by other people’s money.
