Open Book this week will be devoted to contemporary Norwegian literature. Crime writer Samuel Bjork talks to Mariella Frostrup about his bestselling thriller I'm Travelling Alone, which has just been translated into English. His weary detective Holger Munch finds himself investigating the sad disappearance of six year old girls, a crime which becomes horribly personal for him.
Also on the programme the Norwegian writing sensation Karl Ove Knausgaard reveals the book he'd never lend, and we hear the latest news from Norway's bookscene.
