Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If Hank Moody from Californication lived in Denmark he would probably write this book. But maybe instead of using a Danish word meaning filthy mess as a title, he would consider calling it the way one of his books was called. Same stuff.
Same stuff indeed, cause I'm quite positive if this book was ever made into a Hollywood film, they'd change the title to something more like `Crazy little thing called love'. It could star Tom Cruise and his latest Scientology-chosen love as a... Oh, hang on.

Svineriet is a bit of a The Buk (a.k.a. Hank) - influenced diary, a bit of an immoral drama resembling slightly a story of one Danish prince, and a tiny bit of the Twilight Zone.

You will most likely get lost in the parade of girls, perhaps will feel the need to punch one of the characters and tell him to get a grip; this book may even make you stop and reflect on your own youth. There's one thing it won't make you do - it won't make you put it down. There's something addictive in the filth, something gripping in seeing the world through the eyes of you and me. Something both deeply disconcerting and irresistibly alluring in watching the characters demarcating boundaries between acceptable and unacceptable, important and trivial (cause there's no line between good and evil anymore). It sounds like confessions of a misogynist at times, but it's also brutally honest and true.

I don't know about you, but it made me want more.
