Thorfinn, son of one of the Vikings' greatest warriors, is one of the finest fighters in the merry band of mercenaries led by the wily Askeladd. However, Thorfinn is not part of the group because of the looting involved, instead the boy has vowed to kill Askeladd in a fair duel for causing a great tragedy to his family. Thorfinn spends his childhood with the mercenary crew, honing his skills on the battlefield among the Danes, where killing is just another joy in life.

When Askeladd receives news that the Danish prince Canute has been taken hostage, he hatches an ambitious plan: one that will determine the next King of England and drastically change the lives of Thorfinn, Canute and his own. Set in 11th-century Europe, Vinland Saga tells a gory epic of a time when violence, madness and injustice are inevitable, and offers a paradise for battle-crazed Hell and all who live within.
