A young idealistic civil servant, Arvid Falk, leaves the drudgery of bureaucracy to become a journalist and author. As he explores various social activities - politics, publishing, theatre, philanthropy, and business - he finds more hypocrisy and political corruption than he thought possible. He takes refuge with a group of "bohemians", who meet in a red dining room in Berns Salonger to discuss these matters.

Ruined by the narrator
Any additional comments?
Though I was very much looking forward to Strindberg's novel, the narrator's flat, dull voice ruined the experience. I returned the audible book without finishing it. If Audible gets a new reader I would love to try it again. Don't the editors ever listen to the works they have commissioned?
