First published in 1892, Mysteries revolves around a small Norwegian coastal town turned on end by the sudden appearance of Johan Nagel, the prototypical social outcast -- a wanderer, dropout, and eternal foe of the establishment. Nagel becomes the catalyst that brings to the surface all the hidden impulses, concealed thoughts, and dark instincts of the townspeople. For weeks he disrupts the community with his eccentricities, only to disappear just as suddenly as he arrived.
