by Camilla Ønvik Pedersen

Growing up, Katinka has always felt like a Norwegian, at the same time she has always been different. She has a shoe box with papers from the adoption agency in South-Korea, which she keeps in the closet in her room. Here lies the truth about her origin.

As a grown up woman, she decides to travel back to South-Korea - the country where the tigers once smoked pipes - in search for her biological roots. When the tigers smoked is her story about searching for one self, a touching and un-sentimental story about a life of an adoptee. The novel lies in the threshold between real life and fantasy, reality and fairy tale.
