Brødre i blodet ("Blood brothers") was turned into a successful movie, entitled Elling, which received an Oscar nomination in the Best Foreign Film category in 2001. The English translation of the novel is called Beyond the Great Indoors.

His debut novel was a semi-autobiography called 23-salen ("The 23rd Row"), in which he criticized Norway's efforts to take care of psychically challenged individuals.

“İnsan nedense, kendisine ızdırap çektirenlere yeni ızdırap şansları tanımak konusunda çok heveslidir.”
Ingvar Ambjørnsen

“Odymałem się, przyznaję się bez bicia. Mam jednak dość kontrowersyjne zdanie na temat odymania – jak zresztą na temat wielu innych spraw. Uzasadnionego odymania nie należy pochopnie odgwizdywać. Jest to słodko-kwaśny stan ducha, który prowadzi do bliskiego kontaktu z samym sobą. Mnie osobiście przynajmniej odymanie się nie deprymuje. Uważam nawet, że może być wspaniałe. Tak sobie iść niespiesznie poboczem, kopiąc patyki i kamyki, zezować ku istotom stadnym i z dużej odległości słuchać ich pustej gadaniny.

Praca i odymanie. Na tym upływał czas. Czułem się znakomicie.”
Ingvar Ambjørnsen, Fugledansen
