De Blauwe Bus

The Blue Bus


“Am I dead or does this only seem to be so?”
Detective Wikkobus suffers from ‘the blues’. After fifty-five years of letting other people dictate his life, without having taken any initiative, only hanging around the blues cafe, drinking whisky and searching for things that don’t matter anyway, he has had enough of it. Wikkobus decides to go and find himself because, as he knows: ‘Hell is what you make of it’.
