Lars Myttings nonfiction book Hel ved ("Solid wood") (2011) is one of the greatest publishing successes in Scandinavia ever. In 15 months, over 200 000 copies are sold in Norway and Sweden. Rights are sold to Denmark, Sweden, Finland and UK/US. The book is a «practical-lyrical» guide on the use and lore of firewood, based on Norwegian traditions and our modern science on stoves and green energy. A partly rewritten and expanded manuscript, intended for the international reader, is available.
