    Sonja is ready to get on with her life. She's over 40 now, and the Swedish crime novels she translates are losing their fascination. She sees a masseuse, tries to reconnect with her sister, and is finally learning to drive. But under the overbearing gaze of her driving instructor, Sonja is unable to shift gears for herself. Sonja hoped her move to Copenhagen years ago would have left rural Jutland in the rearview mirror. Yet she keeps remembering the dramatic landscapes of her childhood - the endless sky, the whooper swans, the rye fields - and longs to go back.

    Danmarks internationale forfatterstjerne Dorthe Nors skriver om længsel i alle tænkelige former i novellesamlingen "Kort over Canada". "Kort over Canada" er fortællinger om mennesker - sammen og hver for sig, men aldrig rigtig forventningsafstemte. Vi møder dem i Norge, i Thy, i Los Angeles og i København, men aldrig helt hjemme. En ægtemand taber alle kampe, og det er ikke første gang, han er kørt ud i en skov. En kvindelig forfatter logerer i betænkelig nærhed af sin tidligere elskers mor. En mand må konstatere, at der er sket en slags dobbeltbooking, så han ikke skal i seng med Anna, men med til hendes mosters fødselsdag.
