Popular saga narratives tell us that the Norwegian King Olav Tryggvason grew up in Russia, brought Christianity to Norway and Iceland, founded the oldest City of Norway, and sent an expedition to America before he disappeared in the Baltic Sea in the year 1000. In The Search for Olav Tryggvason, historian Øystein Morten searches for "a truer picture" of the king.
