Popular Norwegian TV-personality Per Ståle Lønning combines his lifelong hobby of fishing with the talk-show-formula. He travels around the world with famous Norwegians as teammates, participating in international fishing competitions. The competition works only as surroundings for a closer and more personal meeting with some of Norway's most controversial public figures. Among his guests are the defense minister Kristin Krohn-Devold, the outspoken whaler Steinar Bastesen, the liberal priest Einar Gelius, and the famous political secretary Arne Treholt who in 1986 was sentenced to life for espionage, but later pardoned.

I will admit i'm not the biggest fan of Per Ståle Lønning. I think he has made a joke of himself through some stupid talk-shows, but finally it looks like he has found his place in life! He surprised me by showing of a charming, unpredictable sense of humor. So the serious journalist Per Ståle Lønning is nothing but a prankster trapped in an old mans body! I laughed out loud when they are in Africa and whaler Steinar Bastesen is talking about what caliber rifle he would use to eliminate all the elephants in the background! Hysterically funny! For once I actually hope Per Ståle returns with more of the same.
