“Krökentötter,” an ancient Viking warrior turned bounty hunter, who
pursues the most extraordinary – and dangerous – game.
Asgard has led

“monster hunting.” The news of such a creature in the territories of
Noordland seems to offer him an opportunity to win enormous rewards,

of the Vikings. Asgard and Sieglind embark on a drakkar with one simple

clash between a man thirsty for vengeance against the Fates… and the son
of the Gods.
