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.
I never thought I’d be hooked on a berserk’s series from the Viking Age.
The first book of the series has a print run of 40 000 copies and is translated into eight languages. I predict for this book to be just as much of a success – it deserves it.

«Vinland» will not stand in the shadow of “Jomsviking”; Yet again does Bull-Hansen show us what a fantastic storyteller he is.
It requires a skilled bard to write a 560 page novel and yet make the reader wish for it being twice as long. A riveting read pleasing both new and old readers.

He’s done it again: Given us a marvellous brick of a Viking thriller. So intens that you can smell the stench of blood from the pages, and realistic to the point that you need to get a second rug to read of the Vinland winters.
