Bjørn Andreas Bull-Hansen


One man.
One destiny.
A new continent.

After the Battle of Svolder, Torstein and his family must flee west to escape the avenging wrath of Olaf Tryggvason’s men. Torstein has become the chieftain of a band of Jomsvikings, and sets out in search of the fabled larch forests said to be found across the ocean. He plans to become a shipbuilder and grow rich, creating a future for himself and his family.
But Torstein, once an enslaved warrior, is soon forced to fight for his life and the reunification of his kin. Vinland gives readers a unique insight into the lives of North America’s first settlers – as well as the conflicts that arose with the area’s mighty indigenous communities.
This is the second novel in the Jomsviking series, but it can also be read as a stand-alone work. The first book in the series, Jomsviking, burst straight onto Norway’s bestseller lists and currently has a total print run of 40,000 copies.
