The orange girl
"My father died eleven years ago. I was only four then, I never thought I’d hear
from him again, but now we’re writing a book together."
To Georg Røed, his father is no more than a shadow, a distant memory. But
then one day his grandmother discovers some papers stuffed into the lining of
an old red pushchair. The pages are a letter to Georg, written just before his
father died, and a story, The Orange Girl.
But The Orange Girl is no ordinary story – it is a riddle from the past and
centres around an incident in his father's youth. One day he boarded a tram and
was captivated by a beautiful girl standing in the aisle, clutching a huge paper
bag of luscious-looking oranges. Suddenly the tram gave a jolt and he stumbled
forward, sending the oranges flying in all directions.
Since that day, his father became obsessed with finding out the identity of the
Orange Girl, and now, from beyond the grave, he is asking his son to help him
solve the puzzle...
