About the Author

Frans G. Bengtsson, Swedish essayist, novelist, poet, and biographer, was born in Tossjoe, near Kristianstad, as the son of the manager of an estate in Skane. Bengtsson was the first successful practitioner of the informal essay in Sweden, a genre that he virtually introduced to the literature of his own country. His best-known novel is Roede orm (1941-45, The Long Ships), a Viking saga written in an ornate and romantic style.

Daily Telegraph

`A boldly illuminated picture of the Northmen... confidently recommended'
The Times

`A banquet of adventure by sea and land, with man-size helpings of battle and murder, robbery and rape'
New Statesman
