Supplementing this collection is Thomas F's Last Notes to the Public (Thomas F's siste nedtegnelser til almenheten, 1983). This consists of the novella "Carl Lange", a noir thriller about a psychological duel between a suspect and a detective, unreliably narrated by the suspect, and the eponymous "Thomas F's Last Notes to the Public". In ten brief notes Thomas documents his interactions with other people, most of which involve failures of understanding or communication. This is surprisingly upbeat: the cantankerous Thomas, in his eighties and failing, doesn't want to be taken to a nursing home but has otherwise come to terms with his fate and doesn't give a hoot; and those interactions that are positive still bring joy.
