The Mountain

With a furious pace and thrilling tale, this storytelling virtuoso combines Viking legends of gods with the present day

How many of them are there, actually? Should I count myself, too? How many of us are there?

In the centre of Ashtown looms a mountain whose cloud-shrouded peak no one has ever seen. Lif, who works in the catacombs museum, receives a strange order: she is to go up the mountain immediately, for soon the mountain will reveal itself and nothing will be the same. Arri, Lif’s neighbour, arrives uninvited for a visit when the town loses electricity and the end of the world begins.
