Peter lives a silent life in West Sweden working with historic buildings.
Twelve hundred years earlier the Viking Björn lives a life everything but silent. He ventures westward on a Viking voyage which will change his own as well as Peter’s lives.
When Peter is contracted to inspect an old church he finds a Viking mystery which marks the start of a voyage for Peter as well, a voyage which takes him well beyond West Sweden and his silent life. On their respective timelines both find new cultures, love, consideration and persecution, and they find a treasure. But there are more who wants it.
