This play is a tragicomic compilation of 24 monologues, as well as a couple of intermezzi, in which a series of people who have somehow failed expectations, tell their stories about, what is often referred to as the world’s richest country, Norway. However, the texts could just as well take place in any of the other four Scandinavian countries, as they have many similarities. Throughout the text, Halle has maintained an ironic distance to many of the grotesque and tragic stories, and in this way he has liberated the text from being merely a discourse on Scandinavia, and brings to the play, a lot of comedy.
