My latest article: The Norwegian crusaders

In today's issue of Aftenposten, Norway's largest newspaper, I have an article (external link) on King Sigurd the Jerusalemite, who was the first European king to go on a crusade to the Holy Land, and why the Norwegian contribution to the crusades and the conqeust of the city of Sidon (now Saida in Lebanon) was of greater significance than historians have realised until now.
The article is based on my lastest book, Korsfareren - Sigurd Jorsalfare og hans verden, the first biography of the first crusader king.
