Where does the sun go up/down during summer Solstice, winter solstice and Equinox

I have a problem I can't get straight. I wonder when the sun goes up and down during these three occurences:
-summer Solstice (decl = +23.4 deg)
-winter solstice (decl = -23.4 deg)
-equinox (decl = 0 deg)

Ths formula should hold:
 tan(Az) = sin(H) / ( cos(H) * sin(lat) - tan(decl) * cos(lat) )

Az = the angel (see below)
lat = latitude ( go with lat = 59.33  here)
decl= declination angel of the sun

cos(H) = - tan(decl) * tan(lat)

H = "hour angel"

North = 0 deg
East = 90 deg
South = 180 deg
West = 270 deg

I seem to get bad values when I do this. Culd someone calculate this 6 valus for me?
up/down for +23.4 / 0 / -23.4
