Robertson, Robert. Robert Robertson was created by “Stein Riverton,” the pseudonym of the Norwegian author Sven Elvestad (Knut Gribb, Asbjorn Krag, Enevold Rist), and appeared in five novels from 1923 to 1929, beginning with Fænomenet Robert Robertson.

Robert Robertson is a cold, amoral master thief who is a “hawk preying on hawks” and who steals from other criminals. He does this not from some desire to see that justice is done, but because criminals who are stolen from do not complain to the police. He is occasionally pursued by Enevold Rist.
