About the Author
Fran Parnell's passion for Scandinavia began while studying for a masters degree in Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic. Initial brushes with Old Norse left her swearing at the grammar book, but a strange slideshow featuring sublime Icelandic mountains and a matter-of-fact man who'd literally dug his own grave awakaned a fascination with Iceland that has just kept on growing. Since then, Fran has returned to the country as often as finances have allowed and, when not in Iceland, can read, think and dream of little else. Fran has also worked on Lonely Planet's guides to Scandinavian Europe, Sweden and Reykjavik.
