In the aftermath of disasters, communities have the opportunity to respond and recover successfully, or end up in a dysfunctional state. This paper addresses the issue of recovery, and contributes to the understanding of community resilience through the case study of the Kattmarka landslide. To give a thorough insight into the incident, this paper studies the phase from the landslide in 2009, up until the period after the court ruling in 2015. Through a mixture of five different qualitative methods, respectively semi-structured and structured interviews, media searches, participant observation, and document analyses, the paper has highlighted fundamental questions in resilience. Furthermore, this paper suggests that six years after the incident, the narratives from those affected by the landslide differ from the narratives of the local government. It is also suggested that the local government economy has influenced both the progress after the landslide and the bond with those affected, and also that both the affected and the local government feel let down.
