I Have Arrived at a Strange Place

Linus lives in a silent flat in an anonymous area around Ringvägen on Södermalm in Stockholm. He’s been divorced for a while, but not by his own choice. Every other week his five-year-old son Herman comes to stay with him, every other week he buries himself in work, editing lifestyle books as a freelancer. Linus feels stuck, both in his private life and his work life.

After reading about the death of a childhood friend, Linus coincidentally comes across another old schoolfriend, Adam, and decides to make contact. Adam proves to be some sort of an ‘underground man’, and he asks Linus to help him make a film about his life. As Linus starts to understand his murky thoughts, it becomes clear that they are not just words – Adam is planning to turn them into action. Both allured and frightened, Linus can’t resist being pulled into Adam’s darkness. As if there was something there that could fill a void.

I Have Arrived at a Strange Place is Dimitris Alevras third novel. It is a thrilling investigation of our time and of phenomenon such as radicalisation, prepping and right-wing extremism – methods that an alienated person of today could apply in order to handle their increasing loneliness and isolation.
