The Authority looks favourably upon meticulousness, efficiency and ambition. Bjorn has all of this in spades, but it's only in the Room that he can really shine. Unfortunately, his colleagues see things differently. In fact, they don't even see the Room at all.

The Room is a short, sharp and fiendish fable in the tradition of Franz Kafka, Samuel Beckett and Charlie Kauffman. If you have ever toiled in an office, felt like the world was against you or questioned the nature of reality then this is the novel for you.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A gripping, tense, demonic fable in which the unease is precision-tooled and the turns of the screw wholly unexpected. * Neel Mukherjee *
The Room is the most effective chapbook on workplace comportment since Glengarry Glen Ross. Hats off! * Nick Offerman, Ron Swanson in Parks and Recreation *
Thoroughly enjoyable... If you read only one novel by a famous Swedish actor translated into English this year, make it The Room -- Ian Sansom * Guardian *
Kafka meets The Office in this hilarious and chilling Swedish fable of workplace politics -- Kate Saunders * The Times *
A brief but brilliant tale -- Stephanie Boland * Financial Times *

“Wow!”

Utterly mind blowing - I'm not sure what just happened but I loved every minute of it!
Bjorn has to be one the most obscure character I have ever encountered, not sure if he was "ill" or... More
