From their blurb: "…men mest av alt håper vi du liker nerding rundt krim og thriller og spionhistorier like mye som oss, og kommer med tilbakemeldinger i kommentarfeltene."

Beneath the cuts are two Varg Veum fanfic. The first has teen-up rating and the second is gen (slash if you squint). The labels are in Norwegian.

Fioler er blå (Violets Are Blue)  )

Den som sover (The One Who Sleeps) )

When I was doing my research I went through all the Veum-dialog I could get hold of.  The most inspiring quotations are gathered here (in Norwegian). Especially Veum/Hamre-enthusiasts should pay attention to these. ;)

I have also set up a Varg Veum-biography, a Jakob E. Hamre-biography and a Veum-timeline. (All in Norwegian.) Lots of useful stuff for others contemplating writing Veum fanfic, in other words. :D

Varg Veum is the central character in a series of crime novels, written by Gunnar Staalesen, about a private detective who lives in Bergen, on the west coast of Norway. The books have been translated into several languages, including English, German, Swedish, and Danish.

The eleventh Varg Veum movie De døde har det godt, had its Norwegian premiere January 20. 2012. It got mixed reception, but here is at least a nice picture from it. More pictures from the Varg Veum movie productions.
