Mr Sandberg told NRK that his stepping down was due to person reasons and not to do with the release of his book.

“I've been through some tough years where the work burden has been tough, both for me and my family. I choose to put both feet on the ground for a while”.

The deputy leader, who has declined several offers of Minister posts for what he states is family reasons, has been working on the book for some time. Many of his political colleagues are curious about its content.

VG has reported many top Progress politicians fear what the work contains concerning revelations about individuals.

According to the tabloid publication, Mr Sandberg has sent emails text messages to certain people highlighted in the book to give them the right of reply, giving them just hours to do so if they wished to influence what is contained therein.

Publisher and former TV2 programme host Arve Juritzen said that people had been in touch.

“Some want access to what is written about them, and others wonder if they're referred to. We have provided some insight, others have not received it.”

It is not known whether the book, “Against my will - Clearing up a political life”, will reveal more about Mr Sandberg’s decision to resign.

Progress Party leader Siv Jensen says she respects his decision to resign but will not read his book.

“I know this has been a very difficult process for Per because he is very fond of the Party, and has put a considerable amount of effort in for Progress. I have to respect his choice and am very happy that he makes clear that he will continue to work for Progress from parliament,” she said to NRK.

Mr Sandberg has served as a Progress parliamentary politician for 16 years.

“I haven’t written the book to cause trouble. But you know, there’s a racket about whatever Per Sandberg writes or says,” the author remarked.

“It’s an autobiography, and is a subjective version of how a single person wants to be remembered,” Progress parliamentary leader Harald Tom Nesvik declared to VG. “There’s something named my version, your version and the correct version. Per comes with his version here.”
