Ragnvald is a lawyer and just shy of the ambulance chaser class so he is probably not exactly in the top league of the country’s attorney society. Ragnvald works mostly with divorce cases and his experiences during the working day has made him a strongly convinced bachelor. When women bare their teeth ready to fall upon their poor spouses during negotiations a frightened shudder runs through poor Ragnvald, yes experiences from working life has made him immune to female overtures of any kind. One of Ragnvald few pleasures in life is membership in Bogstad Golf Club, and although he can hardly be said to be in the top league among the athletes there either he takes a round ever so often.
Otherwise, he frequents the city’s film societies and he is particularly fond of French film noir and Hitckock classics in black and white. Ragnvald is also a good amateur photographer and can often be observed on the piers or along the trails around the city with his trusty Rolleiflex. His greatest desire is to be able to work with pinup photography, but knows deep down that he will never manage to ask a member of the opposite sex to be model. A little sneaky photography of scantily clad women on the city’s many beaches during the summer is as far as he stretches it and must admit that this sometimes has brought him more discomfort and trouble than desirable.
Like most in his profession is Ragnvald completely dependent on coffee. He can rarely stay away from the stuff for long and luck would have it that he has his office not far from Moxie’s. Ragnvald comes running wild eyed and shaking to Moxie’s with the coffee hunger throbbing in his veins several times a day. As observant readers of the series have probably discovered, he shares this addiction with most of the regulars at Laura’s cafe.
