The Invoice by Jonas Karlsson
A young man working at a video rental store is surprised by a hefty invoice from a government agency. His first instinct – ignoring the mailing altogether nets him a substantial fine on the next bill and when he eventually responds he learns some hard- to-swallow truths about the cost of his comfortable lifestyle. Everything, especially happiness, has a price.
Jonas Karlsson’s slim but profound novel offers a refreshing take on modern life.
