This is a novel, the third in a series, about a fictional character, Ulvbjörn Vamodsson, and his adventures in seventh-century Europe. The main event in the novel is the murder of Ulvbjörn's father-in-law during a visit to Lejre, a central place in Iron Age Denmark, which takes place in the prologue. Ulvbjörn's task is to find the murderer. From a literary point of view, the novel is an experiment: what happens if you employ the method of Agatha Christie's Poirot novels to a story set in early medieval Europe?
