(NO, 1967 -)
Although technically based in Stavanger, the setting for his Nordisk Books debut (working title 'Termin'), Nor-Hansen has spent most of the last decade or so sailing round the world with his wife in a rather small boat. His first novel was published in 1996 and he has since written a number of books and collections of poetry. Termin will be his first book to be translated into English and was nominated for the prestigious Nordic Council Literature Prize in 2017.
