About the book

Norway is promoted as one of the happiest places on earth with one of the highest standards of living – an egalitarian utopia. Meet The Norwegians is a standalone accompaniment to The Secret Norwegian series – probably the most comprehensive books ever written on Norway, its people, its culture, revealing the dark secrets hidden behind the enforced veneer of conformity. Norwegians – from doctors to academics to students – disclose what it’s like to live under the dark cloud of Janteloven’s unwritten societal rules and taboo. Read the conversations, accompanied by over 100 satirical cartoons revealing that all is not as it seems in this Scandinavian 'paradise'. This book is a never-been-done-before inadvertent psychological breakdown of a nation: a country living denial.
