JOMSVIKING  
Nov. 10, 2017
Author:  Bjørn Andreas Bull-Hansen
Category:  International rights: Fiction
Description:  A literary novel full of suspense set in brutal times and told with historical accuracy, a literary response to the successes like Vikings and Game of Thrones. This novel has become the unexpected book phenomenon in Norway since it was released this Easter. It went straight to the bestseller list when published and the reviews were panegyric. This summer this novel has been the second most sold newcomer, only beaten by Jo Nesbø.
Torstein Tormodson is the hero of JOMSVIKING. We follow him from the age of twelve, from witnessing the brutal murder of his father, through his years as a slave and outlaw, and later as a warrior and mercenary. This is a novel about a man who, against all odds, stands up against royal power and tyranny. JOMSVIKING takes us to Scandinavia, Poland, England and Scotland in the years 993-1000. The author has already started writing the next book about Torstein, which will be published in 2018.
