This album is a story about disasters, crime and death in Norrland. A murder ballad album. Sort of. Based on songs that fuctioned as newspapers during the late 17th century (Skillingtryck), the albums is filled with all the most gruesome stories from the north of Sweden. All based on a true story and with a lot of research included.
