SynopsisDoctor Proctor's Fart Powder: The End of the World. Maybe. by Jo Nesbo
Everyone is hooked on the hottest singing competition on TV, The NoroVision Choral Throwdown!

Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa are back in their third adventure from Jo Nesbo, the bestselling Norwegian author of all time!
