THE VIKING BLOODLINE

AN OCCULT GENDER CURSE

For a long time, Assur Lichbeard puts his trust in the fact that the volve's (sorcerer) curse will not hit him. In 912, something happens that forces him to resign. The Viking chief from Haalogaland sees no other way than to send his daughter to Sami wizards in Lapland.

EXPLOSION ON AN OIL PLATFORM

In 2013, Malte Moddy seems to have recovered from the mysterious illness. He will return to work in the security department of the oil company and anticipates that the next few weeks will be demanding. Therefore, he uses the opportunity to join his brother in whaling in the Vestfjord outside the Lofoten Islands. Already the first day it goes wrong.

A BLACK SECRET

Karin - Malte's sister-in-law - insists on explaining her horrible behaviour last time Malte was at their home in Reine in Lofoten. Malte refuses and tries to avoid it. However, not even Karin has any idea what is really behind it or what consequences it will have.

THE HERITAGE FROM ODESSA

Elizaveta - the daughter of the deceased wine farmer - has taken over the farm. Is there any possibility that she and Malte can have a love affair?

 

COMING Q1 2021 

In the third book about Malte Moddy, THE VIKING BLOODLINE (Q1 2021), an important part of the action takes place in the world longest Viking building (Longhouse) so far discovered. It was built at Borg in Lofoten and was about 83 meters long. About the year 900, the building was abruptly vacated. In this thriller, I am free to speculate as to why. And who knows ... Maybe it was happening just the way I described it in the book?

At present time, important parts of the action take place in Haalogaland (Northern Norway).
