Morten Strøksnes is an award-winning Norwegian author, journalist, photographer, and intellectual historian. The Book of the Sea, the art of hunting giant sharks in a lifeboat, all-year-round on the open sea, received international attention. The book revolves around two friends hunting sharks off the coast of a little island in Norway. In his 2006 book What’s Going On In Northern Norway?, Strøknes traveled around the Northern Norway and asked questions about history, nature, human life, and the history of the area. In 2010, Strøknes published Death in the Congo, which revolved around two Norwegian soldiers that were accused of spying and murder in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2009. Both books are works of exceptional literary journalism.
