Uheldigvis er der ingen blomster at vande, da dagen oprinder, for lejligheden er raseret. Og kunden kom aldrig på ferie. Han ligger myrdet under en vaeltet sofa. Tortureret til døde.

Endnu et mesterværk af den Pulitzer-vindende Donna Tartt, forfatteren til "Stillidsen". Hos familien Cleve taler man om alt, alt undtagen Robin. Familien var i færd med at forberede middagen til Mors dag den skæbnesvangre dag for tolv år siden: Charlotte kaldte på barnet, men Robin kom ikke. Det var nabokonen, der opdagede ham - hængende kvalt ude i haven. De uklare omstændigheder omkring drengens død kaster tunge skygger over slægten. Det sønderknuste hjem passes af den sorte stuepige Ida, mens Robins mor og mellemste søster bevæger sig søvngængeragtigt mellem seng og sofa. Da Robin døde var Harriet nyfødt, men nu er hun en stædig tolvårig. Med sin bedste ven Hely på slæb beslutter Harriet sig for på egen hånd at undersøge sin storebrors død. Med sin afdækning af en families længsel og sorg har Donna Tartte skrevet en ambitiøs og atmosfærefyldt sydstatsroman fyldt med inidsigtsfulde, nuancerede portrætter. "Den lille ven" er en skræmmende skildring af det at vokse op og forstå menneskers overlevelsesmekanismer. 1. Danish.

Jacob Jensen - born 1926 in Copenhagen, Denmark - Is a well established name in the field of industrial design. Jacob Jensen is the son of an upholsterer, Alfred Jensen, and his wife Olga Jensen. He grew up in the rough environment of the Vesterbro area, left school after the seventh grade, completed his training as an upholsterer in 1946, and went on the road for some months, as was the custom for newly trained artisans. His father established his own furniture workshop in 1947 in Gartnergade, Copenhagen where Jacob joined him. Here he developed furniture including a sofa bed and began to design chairs. He was discovered by chance and was encouraged to attend the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He was accepted at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts in the furniture division in 1948 as the only upholsterer among 11 furniture makers, one of which was Poul Kjærholm. The school was a breeding ground for the many furniture designers, which have made Danish furniture world famous.

New York Times Bestseller Embrace Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) and become happier with this definitive guide to the Danish philosophy of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. Why are Danes the happiest people in the world? The answer, says Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, is Hygge. Loosely translated, Hygge&#8212;pronounced Hoo-ga&#8212;is a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. 'Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience,' Wiking explains. 'It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe.' Hygge is the sensation you get when you&#8217;re cuddled up on a sofa, in cozy socks under a soft throw, during a storm. It&#8217;s that feeling when you&#8217;re sharing comfort food and easy conversation with loved ones at a candlelit table. It is the warmth of morning light shining just right on a crisp blue-sky day. The Little Book of Hygge introduces you to this cornerstone of Danish life, and offers advice and ideas on incorporating it into your own life, such as: Get comfy. Take a break. Be here now. Turn off the phones. Turn down the lights. Bring out the candles. Build relationships. Spend time with your tribe. Give yourself a break from the demands of healthy living. Cake is most definitely Hygge. Live life today, like there is no coffee tomorrow. From picking the right lighting to organizing a Hygge get-together to dressing hygge, Wiking shows you how to experience more joy and contentment the Danish way.
