This is could be the adventure book of adventure books. A smart, literate book full of humor and action. Once you read this you'll never look at a Viking the same way again.

Product details 528 pages New York Review of Books - English 9781590173466 Reviews:
"Review" by , "It's terrific fun, the kind of book that moves the fustiest of critics to pronounce it a rollicking yarn or something to that effect. Translation for us mere mortals: There are no boring parts to skip...Bengtsson writes the most delightful version of historical fiction....Here is the buried treasure, readers, newly unearthed. Now, go forth and read."
"Review" by , "The literary equivalent of an action- and intrigue-filled adventure movie that won't insult your intelligence....Orm is a charismatic character, and Bengtsson is an infectiously enthusiastic and surprisingly funny writer — even readers with zero interest in the Europe of a millennium ago will want to keep turning the pages. All novels should be so lucky as to age this well."
"Review" by , “This extraordinary saga of epic adventure on land and sea…is a masterpiece of historical fiction…The Long Ships should be a rare delight. And not least of the rewards of reading Mr. Bengtsson's gorgeous romance is the sly humor that is sprinkled through it.”
"Review" by , "Bengtsson keeps his readers eager for the next chapter. He has a sharp eye for the picturesque and the comic in daily living, and though his style is sophisticated he often writes with a kind of festive abandon.”
