"Mysteries is the story of Johan Nielson Nagel, a mysterious stranger who suddenly turns up in a small Norwegian town one summer - and just as suddenly disappears. Nagel is a complete outsider, a sort of modern Christ treated in a spirit of near parody. He condemns the politics and thought of the age, brings comfort to the "insulted and injured," and gains the love of two women suggestive of the biblical Mary and Martha. But there is a sinister side of him: in his vest he carries a vial of prussic acid."--Jacket

Above all, talk centres on the doings of Oliver Andersen and the large family that he and his wife contrive to create despi
