PER BERGERSEN – PB (1990) // ARVID SKANCKE-KNUTSEN
Per Bergersen was a young, talented musician from Røros who many predicted would have a promising music career. Instead, he was shot dead in his own home by a friend in June 1990. He was only 30 years old. According to the comrade, the shots were fired at Bergersen's own request. The day before the murder, Bergersen filled Thomasgården in Røros to the brim when he held his first proper solo concert. The book will tell the story of Per, told by friends, family and band members, and not least Per's own notes.
