When Jesus Christ arrives uninvited at your apartment, and gently but firmly advises you to clean up your life, well, naturally, you do as you're tolda debut novel with the rough, darkly humorous feel of a Dogme movie
Niko is 13 when he loses his parents in a car crash. His sister, seven years his elder, is left to look after him. As he grows up, she longs to lose this brotherly millstone around her neck, but he cannot bear the thought of losing her protection. He goes to extremes to retain her care and attention, putting himself, his girlfriend, and others in harm's way, striking up with a gang, and administering violence to order. One day he goes so far that suicide attempt breeds suicide attempt. On the other side of tragedy, he returns to his flat to find an intruder on his sofaa biker who proves immune to Niko's menace. The biker convinces him, first, that he is Jesus Christ, and, second, that he must now take charge of Niko's life. Niko is moved to return to his home village, where he sets about reconstructing himself, and doing penance for his failures. He even finds love anew. But does he know what to do with it, and has he really learned anything from his sister or from his miraculous new mentor?
