Ogres or giants, sometimes both, double-headed or one-eyed, the can devour or petrify humans. On the roads of the rich fantasy of Norwegian forests though, there is always a young Askelad, ready to defy the Trolls, to trick them and beat them.

As Abbi Patrix tells the stories of the most inspiring fairy tales of Norway, he is sometimes Askelad, sometimes a king, sometimes the king’s daughter, or a Troll. In doing so, he gives back a bigger place to the Trolls in the contemporary western imagination.
