When Icelandic hardman Egil and his crew are storm driven up the Humber and into the hands of his old enemy Erik Bloodaxe, their days of travelling trading and trashing seem numbered. But Egil has more strings to his bow… and his harp, than first appear.
Commissioned for the Yorvik Viking Festival, this fast moving, tongue-in cheek version of a classic saga mixes murder, mayhem and mirth in equal measure. It sings with verse as varied as Icelandic kennings and the North Sea shipping forecast.
The original "Nordic Noir" crime drama.
