A series that takes place in Anglo-Viking England
"Many readers have asked me how I, being a Danish author, found the idea of writing a series that takes place in Anglo-Viking England.
Well, first of all you must remember, that Cnut was king of Denmark as well as of England (and Norway), so I have - so to speak - known him since my school days. But it was my encounter with M.K. Lawson's brilliant book Cnut - England's Viking King (Tempus, 2004) that opened my eyes to how great his influence on England and its history really was."
