The crime-solving duo known as the King's Hounds--Halfdan and his master, Winston--are investigating a possible plot against King Cnut by onetime enemy-turned-ally Jarl Thorkell. Joined on the arduous journey by Winston's woman, Alfilda, and Atheling, his cranky mule, they venture to the markets in Thetford to gather information. On the way, they meet a wealthy farmer who is seeking justice at the District Court against a thane accused of rape. When the thane tells a bald-faced lie in court, resulting in a dismissal of the charges, all hell breaks loose. In a time when noblemen are the law and they can't be trusted to be ethical, the law has no meaning. When the thane turns up dead, the tables turn and the accuser becomes the accused. Winston and Halfdan race to solve the crime before the region erupts in violence. Allegiances are tested and motives questioned in this captivating drama of justice and treachery in medieval England.

Since the late 1960s, the novels of Sjowall and Wahloo's Martin Beck detective series, along with the works of Henning Mankell, Hakan Nesser and Stieg Larsson, have sparked an explosion of Nordic crime fiction - grim police procedurals treating urgent sociopolitical issues affecting the contemporary world. Steeped in noir techniques and viewpoints, many of these novels are reaching international audiences through film and television adaptations. This reference guide introduces the world of Nordic crime fiction to English-speaking readers. Caught between the demands of conscience and societal strictures, the detectives in these stories - like the heroes of Norse mythology - know that they and their world must perish, but fight on regardless of cost. At a time of bleak eventualities, Nordic crime fiction interprets the bitter end as a celebration of the indomitable human spirit.

Hraban, the Raven, is a young Germani noble, born to the Marcomanni tribe during the reign of Augustus. Having never met his father, the ill-omened Maroboodus, and raised by his war-chief grandfather Hulderic, Hraban’s dream of the return of his famous father from Roman service suddenly becomes reality. Unfortunately, the return of his father also brings death and war to their village, and the malice or Rome follows his father and his rogue men like a shadow. Drusus, the famed Roman soldier prowls on the borders of Germania’s many tribes, and will surely lead the legions against them eventually. A hunted man, Maroboodus hopes to unite the nations against the threat, and he has brewed a desperate plan in his clever mind. His son Hraban, and Hraban’s brother Gernot, must weight their honor against the demands of their powerful, deceitful father, and find a way to survive the roles Maroboodus has chosen them in his grand scheme. That scheme is also a desperate one. Maroboodus’s Roman ways are ill-suited for the Germani, and he is seen as an outsider, who still must convince them all to heed his wisdom. Maroboodus knows triumph against Drusus comes only from discipline so lacking in Germania, and survival hinges on a change in the old ways, and perhaps on the demise of those, who would not change anyway. So, men must die. Hraban’s task is to betray his own for his father’s vision, before Rome, the ever-hungry Wolf, turns south. While Drusus is busy in the north, subjugating the Chauci, and the Sigambri, Maroboodus must not only grasp power in the Marcomanni tribe, but to form a grand alliance of former and current enemies in the south. Then, he must defeat the tribe of the Matticati, staunch Roman allies. Hraban’s role, the one he must adopt in order to prove himself to Maroboodus, demands he must make, and break many oaths. If he succeeds, the Germani might be saved under the leadership of Maroboodus, and Hraban might finally find the favor of his father, if not his honor. And yet, Hraban finds a surprising, hidden layer in the schemes of his father, and must ultimately decide between family, and the honorable ways of his ancient people. The Oath Breaker is a story of Rome and Germania, and based on historical accounts of a period, when the fate of Germania was decided, and the foundation of the imperial Rome was built. It is a first book in a series that will take Hraban from the mysterious depths of the Black Woods to the illustrious, terrible Rome, and far beyond, as he seeks to avenge his lost kin and honor. Drusus, Tiberius, Livia, Augustus, and many other famous men and women will have their part to play in the story of the ancient legends. War, love, betrayal, and friendship alike can be found in this massive tale of the past. The brutal story of Hraban and his friends is one of Longward’s most powerful books.
