Röde Orm (The Long Ships) part I and II by Frans G. Bengtsson
These two books have been on my bookshelf for a very long time, maybe even 30 years! I can't even remember when I bought them. They are considered a classic in Sweden and tells the story about the Vikings in the 10th century. The books were written in 1941 and 1945 respectively and although written in a somewhat old fashion Swedish the books are surprisingly fresh. They are one of the most popular books in Sweden or at least it used to

un grand moment de lecture ! du pur plaisir en compagnie d'un héros simple, humain et toujours plein du bon sens viking. On referme ce livre plein de bonnes résolutions : partir à l'aventure, se faire de bons amis, se trouver une jolie femme pleine de sagesse et... élever des vaches, ou brasser de la bière suivant l'humeur.
ha et n'oublions pas la citation :"pour trouver de l'or, il faut beaucoup d'argent"
