Read "Bølge" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

The highest wave ever measured by a fixed installation hit a Norwegian gas transporter in the North Sea. The wave was marked at 25.6 metres high.

The resemblance between the titles is striking and it is underlined by a Nordic iconography. NORSKjazz.no had an image of tall ...
