There's much commotion when Thor, the God of Thunder, finds that his magic hammer, Mjollnir, has been stolen by the awe-inspiring giants. If such a frightening weapon falls in the wrong hands, it will pose a serious threat to all the gods. Therefore, our friends Thor, Loki, Tjalvi and Röskva must disguise themselves and travel to the land of the giants in order to retrieve Mjollnir ...

Valhalla 2 is a recounting of the myth of Thor and Loki going to Utgard in order to retrieve Thor's stolen hammer from the giant Thrym. It is based on the "Lay of Thrym" from The Prose (Snorri's) Edda. A number of giants are introduced, Quark makes his first background appearance, Thor's children are born.

Thor's Wedding has so far been published in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Faroese, Finnish, Dutch, German and Indonesian.
