Reviews

  • The Swedish Academy of Comic Art

    "This series about the courageous and charming Viking girl Siri is no less than a masterpiece. A children’s comic series in the same category as the best international works."

  • The Swedish Research Institute in Istanbul (SRII)

    "With a swift plot, well researched illustrations and a tough little girl in the lead, Siri the Viking is a reading experience for all ages. Not the least does it convey a story about cultural encounters in the Middle Ages, which should be written about more often in our time."

  • Bibliotekstjänst

    "The plot is exciting without presenting actual violence. Siri is not scared at all, she is intelligent and active … The comic offers both a fun reading experience and historical knowledge."
