"In AD 871, men arrived on Iceland's shores. They sought land, freedom and a new way of life. Among them was a small family with the name Hauksson. Over the course of centuries, these humble settlers built a powerful crime family, one that helped shape the nation and its path through history. From disputes with other settler clans, to a clash with the Church, to a conflict with the forces of Norway, the family battles right up to the very end. Part Viking epic, part generational crime drama, The Icelandic Trilogy is the final story arc of this landmark series by creator and writer Brian Wood."--Page 4 of cover.
