I'm looking for a good book about Norse mythology for my boyfriend this Christmas. He's not a heathen, but he's incredibly interested in that pantheon as he's half Swedish and spends the summers there. So I'm looking for something that is more academic. Do you have any suggestions? :)
In fact I haven’t read any academic books about norse mythology - it’s a shame, i know - but if he’s interested in the pantheon maybe you should give him just a regular book about norse myths. There are plenty of them so you have a big choice. Some of the books also have a glossary (or something like that) with an explanation. I’d like to give you a good suggestion but I have no idea which books are available on the Swedish market etc.
Anyway I hope you’ll find something that will make him happy. :)
Are you Swedish?
