Take another trip into the universe of Edvard Frost. Victoria Vargmo has never felt at home in the mountain village where she grew up. She wants to go to the city – to go out into the world and experience life! When a young man from the Norwegian Nazi party and his mysterious German companion try to kidnap her to investigate the spirit blood in her veins, things begin to happen at last. Suddenly she finds herself on a train to Oslo – on her way to meet her legendary, vanished grandfather, Edvard Frost. He's the only one who can protect her. Edvard Frost has met scary monsters and creatures before, but now a war is looming on the horizon… Victoria Vargmo is suddenly trapped in an adventure she never expected. Alexander Løken's trilogy about Edvard Frost's expeditions won him a Boksluker prize and several prestigious nominations. Here comes a new book from the same universe. Victoria Vargmo is Edvard's grandchild and she's just as tough as her grandfather. And that's a good thing because autumn 1939 brings some totally new challenges.
Alexander Løken (b. 1982), made his literary debut in 2014 with The Troll Skull (Trollskallen), the first book in the trilogy about the character Edvard Frost.
