Kristin Lavransdatter is long on my reading list. I started once and need the patience to finish this big trilogy. But it’s about (late) medieval Scandinavia, so it will happen one day. Meanwhile, the Literary Hub, drew my attention to another of Sigrid Undset’s novel, Olav Audunssøn. This isn’t Viking Age, by the way, it’s the later Middle Ages: both Kristin and Olav take place in the thirteenth and fourteenth century.
