Un repaso a las leyendas principales de vikingos y otros pueblos germánicos. La mitología nórdica se distingue por una peculiar mezcla de humor y predestinación, y unos dioses solemnes pero que pueden ser colocados en situaciones ridículas. Odín, Thor, Loki, Frey... se mezclan en sus páginas con gigantes, monstruos o enanos en una amena sucesión de historias.
