The perhaps most renewing and exciting Hamsun experience in the 24-year long history of the Hamsun Festival. Such interpretations of the Nobel Price winner can contribute to opening up new reader groups for Hamsun's lifework.
'Luschin and Skoglund succeeded to create a unity of the different elements.'
