Store Satans Fald (Fall of The Great Satan) – a novel

Denmark & Norway

Torsdag 23. august udkom Nielsens nye roman Store Satans Fald simultant på Gyldendal i Danmark og på forlaget Oktober i Norge.

Romanen fik 5 stjerner og hjerter i Politiken, Berlingske Tidende og Jyllands Posten.

I Danmarks Radio sagde Klaus Rothstein “Den roman rummer nogle af de mest fascinerende og grænseoverskridende og uheldsvangre passager, jeg nogensinde har læst i en dansk roman.”

Og i Kristeligt Dagblad skrev Lars Handsten “en større litterær og kunstnerisk begivenhed, som fornyer litteraturens etiske, politiske og eksistentielle potentiale.”

Nielsen’s new novel Fall of the Great Satan was published 23 August by Gyldendal Publishers (Denmark) and Oktober (Norway)

Agent Nielsen in Cairo

The Supposed Statue of the Prophet Mohammad

- a parallel history of Egypt – Act 3 -

Sunday 8 April Agent Nielsen returned to Cairo to make the third and final attempt to free the plaster copy of Claus Beck-Nielsens body. In September 2010 the effigy was shipped to Cairo as a representative of the universal state citizen to have it’s death bed and burial in the City of the Dead. At the arrival in Cairo Airport it was seized by the Egyptian Intelligence Service, who suspected it of being a statue of the Prophet Mohammad. A few weeks later Agent Nielsen arrived and made his first attempt to free the statue, but he too ended up in the hands of the Egyptian Security Service. This may have been the beginning of the Egyptian Revolution, which culminated a month later in January 2011. Since then – for almost 1½ years – the statue has been considered lost in the post-revolutionary turmoil. But in March 2012 the Danish Embassy in Cairo reported that a private Egyptian individual, a Mr. Eng. Hazem had put it on sale for 5000 Egyptian Pounds. According to himself he had bought it from the Customs (a.k.a. the Security Service?). This final mission of Agent Nielsen was to redeem the statue and – on Friday 13 April after the morning prayer - to let six Egyptian revolutionaries carry the statue through the streets of Cairo to Tahrir Square and finally “bury” it in the hands of The People and the Revolution.

 

Tuesday 10 April

The statue tracked down in a warehouse in Giza, home of the Pharaos:
