About the book
It is the very last autumn, but everyone is too busy to notice. The inhabitants of Copenhagen are only interested in having a good time and have stopped believing in anything except themselves. They don’t even notice that the foundation itself is gradually disappearing. Three oracles have arrived to give them a last warning before it’s all too late, but it is difficult to make anyone listen.
The story follows oracle Amir who is on his first mission to earth and who disguises himself as a cashier at a kebab restaurant, but also four humans: free-spirited Katja who lives in a flatshare with several others; substitute teacher Alice who still pines for her ex; architect Malik who is desperate to carry through his grandiose visions at any cost; and his earnest and environmentally conscious ten-year-old daughter Joanna, the only one who seems to be sensing the catastrophe on the horizon.
The Last Autumn in Legoland is Hanna Rut Carlsson’s first novel. It is a story about hubris and impending disaster, but also about the need for human connection at the brink of the apocalypse.
