    Review ð Kransen by Sigrid Undset 100 Kransen by Sigrid UndsTo be honest I'd never really heard of the famous Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy until a few years ago a reflection on the shocking lack of attention I pay to most great European classics that aren't British I'm slowly filling in my patchy reading history and the Scandinavian greats have been a wonderful delight This is first of the three and deals with the strong headed and stubborn as you like Kristin deciding to choose the 'bad boy' rather than the sensible but unexciting 'good boy' favoured by her father After spending some time with the 'bad boy' all I can say is that love must be blind The guy's a douche He's older than her has a rather sordid past doesn't have much of a care for her honour and none at all for her virtue and generally has 'bad news' stamped on his arse
