"No End" is a piece written by Canadian music journalist and longtime Ark friend, Christian Patrick. Utilizing unprecedented access to the band for nearly six years, Patrick retells an amazing story in lurid detail of one of Sweden's greatest rock and roll bands. It includes the complete history of The Ark 1991-2011 and describes in intimate detail the humble beginnings of the band in Rottne and... Växjö to its quest for success in Malmö. It takes you on a journey through the eyes of six men - Ola Salo, Martin Axén, Sylvester Schlegel, Jens Andersson, Leari and Jepson - who epitomize the true meaning of "rock star". "No End" explains the band's domination of Sweden's press, fans' hearts, and charts. Ultimately, the book looks closely at the band's attempt to crack America and what ultimately went wrong, its 2007 success at Melodifestivalen and its appearance in the most unlikely of places - Eurovision. It is a tale of dreams realized and lives changed. Five albums filled with hopes and fears. Ultimately, it is a story of a band that has No End.
