As a lover of all things Scandinavian and a fan of everything folklore, this book caught my eye right away. I have never known anyone who read it or even heard of it. I opened it up expecting something totally different, and that's what I got. It is a freaky, touching love story. That yes, involves a troll. It's well written. The pace flows along and the dilemmas of the young protagonist pull you in. The characters, including the troll, are strong and sympathetic. The ending... wasn't everything I had hoped... but I would still highly recommend this book to any true literature lover.

Pretty decent quick read. The storyline is supplemented by exerps from various books and legends, which is a nice style but the story itself is nothing special. It was told from the perspective of 5 people which left too little time to build depth for any of the characters. Also, the main character has several names which is rather confusing at first.
