When his father dies, Doppler decides to leave everything behind and start a new life in the forest. There, deep amongst the trees, he reconnects with nature, ponders the meaning of life, and bonds with a baby elk called Bongo.

With Doppler, Erlend Loe has become Norway's most alarming writer - Dagens Næringsliv.
