“She’s Norwegian, gorgeous, full of fun, yet with surprising hidden depths. Quite literally so, since her lower limbs are permanently submerged in the sea. No, she’s not a mermaid. She’s the new Oslo Opera House, an amazing marble and granite vision that rises out of the fjord like a giant ice floe.” Richard Morrison (Sunday Times)
