Book Summary of Once Upon A Time In Scandinavistan

‘Public Intelligence Officer Barsk reported several deaths due to charring of body parts and possible foul play involving cannibalism, at the Tandoori Moose restaurant, off Friendship Chowk. One BC (bad character) absconding. Suspect is a deviant girl, blonde, around twenty, no particular distinguishing marks except that she was last seen wearing a cook’s uniform. Officer requested backup, forensic team. A memo has been sent to all concerned parties…’ A crime novel set in a somewhat futuristic Europe after it has been colonized by India – its industries bought over by Asian capitalists; its administration, by popular referendum, entrusted to the IAS; its food infused with the flavours of curry. The book follows the life of a middle-aged, down-and-out Public Intelligence Officer, Borsk, who on a night-shift apprehending ‘bad characters’ and ‘deviant girls’ stumbles into a restaurant where the tandoori speciality of the day is a well done, forty-something, Indian male. An ingeniously stylized dystopian crime novel set in the grunge and filth of a Europe colonized by file-pushing Indian babus and bad Bollywood films, Once Upon a Time in Scandinavistan is a novel that will both thrill and appal the reader with its luridly detailed landscapes and its unrelentingly dark humour. A film in Swedish is also on the cards.

Pankhuree August 18, 2013 review from Goodreads

Gross. Anything disgusting you can think of (or that a schoolboy could think of) is in this book and if that floats your boat, this is the book for you. Personally I could have done with a less flippant execution of the very intriguing premise of O'Yeah's novel.
