Siv Wyller is a debut author, a student from the creative writing programme at the Norwegian Institute of Children's Books and, not least, a great comic talent. Her first book is about the love-struck barber Lazze who cuts all the mullets in town. Lazze is the town's great hero, a dance band fan … LES MER and a charmer who likes to talk in rhymes. And he is about to catch Gunn, a beautiful girl. But he has problems. When Lazze is nervous, his rhymes become ugly and offensive. What is more, his popularity is starting to go to his head. Eventually, Lazze is in danger of losing Gunn to the town's priest. On top of it all, the mullet is a dying fad, and his small town is threatening to turn its back on him. Lazze knows what to do: he goes to the dance band king Lasse Stefans for help. Hockeysveis fører til dårlige rim is an absurd and comical study of small-town mentality, poor taste and danceable tunes. A book that is short over the ears and long at the back of the neck. '[Siv Wyller] has written a boundless tale that is mad with joy, borrowing elements from a number of genres... Illustrations and text convey the story in equal measure - and with a narrator in possession of a surplus of linguistic and humorous skills, Mullet features bad rhymes about love, delight at the rhythm of language, and not least about dance music - at the same time as the book also explores and reveals something about Norwegian small town mentality.'
