Frida Katinka is the extra help at Moxie’s and takes over when Caroline Synnøve Rød Sildreviik is on holiday or for some other reasons can not be there. She is from working class background, is downright lazy and moody as a rhinoceros with a toothache and Laura has a hard time getting her to do a thing if she show up at work at all. Frida Katinka is a typical east end woman , crude mouthed and completely without respect for the west end and the bourgeois sods who in her eyes laze away the day at Moxie’s. The patrons complain to Laura about her constantly something Laura takes no notice of after the ghosts arrival.
Considering Frida Katinka’s somewhat unkind nature and raunchy language, it is no surprise she is unmarried and living alone, she can hardly be said to be easy on the eyes either. She still lives in the house she was born in and what she does when she’s not filling in for Caroline is not known, but a rumour has it that she earns good money by renting out rooms to people who would rather no one knew where they are. Another has it that she is the town’s only female torpedo. A third that she has been in jail for grievous bodily harm more than once.
Despite all this, Frida Katinka is happy with this state of affairs and life in general. She has taken the job at Moxie’s more for entertaining than for the money as she finds the west end’s many peculiarities and problems rather entertaining, arcane as they are for those of us with a somewhat more down to earth background.
