Interpresse, 1979

A thunderstorm is approaching as Thor, the God of Thunder, and his kinsman Loki arrive at the farm where the siblings Tjalvi and Röskva live. Thor brings them along to the land of the gods, Asgard, where the two children are involved in an adventurous story, culminating in the escape of the dreaded Fenris-Wolf and the threat it poses to the peace of Asgard ...

The story is a free elaboration on the myth of the wolf called Fenrir or Fenris, which was chained by the Norse gods. The myth of Tjalvi's and Röskva's arrival at Asgard to act as Thor's servants is retold, and all the major gods are introduced. The narrative is based on The Prose (Snorri's) Edda.

Cry Wolf has so far been published in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Faroese, Finnish, Dutch, German and Indonesian.
