    Bengtsson's hero, Red Orm-canny - courageous and above all lucky - is only a boy when he is abducted from his Danish home by the Vikings and made to take his place at the oars of their dragon-prowed ships. Orm is then captured by the Moors in Spain, where he fights for the Caliph of Cordova. Escaping from captivity, Orm washes up in Ireland, where he marvels at those epicene creatures, the Christian monks, and from which he then moves on to play an ever more important part in the intrigues of the various Scandinavian kings and clans and dependencies.

    Wie eine nordische Saga beginnt und endet, höchst stilvoll, diese Wikingergeschichte. Was dazwischen liegt, ist aber alles andere als feierlich, sondern spannend und vergnüglich zu lesen. Mit Speeren, Äxten und Menschenleben geht man allerdings sorglos um, Hauptsache, die ess-, trink- und liebesfreudigen Helden haben ihren Spaß! Die Geschichte beginnt so: Orm, Mutters Jüngster, verzärtelt und hypochondrisch, wird von plündernden Nachbar-Wikingern verschleppt. Das Schiff, auf dem die Nordmänner zu ihrem alljährlichen Raubzug gen Spanien fahren, kapern die Mauren.
