Summary
"Björn is a compulsive, meticulous bureaucrat who discovers a secret room at the government office where he works--a secret room that no one else in his office will acknowledge. When Björn is in his room, what his co-workers see is him standing by the wall and staring off into space looking dazed, relaxed, and decidedly creepy. Björn's bizarre behavior eventually leads his co-workers to try and have him fired, but Björn will turn the tables on them with help from his secret room."--
