He gets his father's car, a 1969 model Opel Diplomat, out of hock, and proceeds to drive from Oslo to Haugesund. But he never gets to Haugesund. In Telemark, in Norway's heartland, he meets up with Pakistani "roots researcher" Farida. Who, complete with a broad Telemark accent, a Telemark surname, a cellular phone, and a laptop computer, makes a business out of finding Norwegian relatives in Telemark, for Americans desperately searching for roots. His car gets stolen by locals lusting for its Chevy V8 engine, and he ends up with an old Chevy Impala, traveling the labyrinths of roads that make up Telemark. Written by Steinar Bang See less
