Rolf

Rolf is a substitute teacher at an adult learning centre. He is nearly sixty years old and lives in a flat above a corner shop. Tonight he has killed a girl. Now he is waiting for the police to come and relieve him of his crime. And his loneliness.

Malin Lindroth’s novella Rolf is a character study of a man in a flock of men, the insignificant men in beige winter jackets who wait for the bus every morning. It is a silent and anonymous existence, without intimate relationships.

Rolf is a dark and poignant tale that both continues and expands the investigation into societal norms which Lindroth initiated in The Spinster. But it is also a multi-faceted story about a human being in all its complexity.
