11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in Russian and Undetermined and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der korrupte Bürgermeister einer kleinen russischen Stadt setzt alle Mittel politischer Repression ein, um einem sturköpfigen Mechaniker dessen markant an der Barentsee gelegenes Landstück abzujagen. Dessen Auflehnen gegen die Autorität scheint angesichts der umfassenden Verflechtung der staatlichen Organe und ihrer Sanktionierung durch die orthodoxe Kirche von Beginn an zum Scheitern verurteilt. Das in überwältigenden Bildern fotografierte Drama gibt sich durch erzählerische und visuelle Details als moderne Variation der biblischen Hiobsgeschichte zu erkennen, wobei es das wieder erstarkende Bündnis aus Klerus und Nomenklatura als ein alles verschlingendes Ungeheuer kritisiert."
