It's December 1st and Sofie isn't happy about moving to Singapore with her mother, Tove, after Christmas. She's been moving from country to country all of her life and has finally made some friends ...
Sofie doesn't feel like going to a new school, so Ragnhild helps her fake being ill. Tove orders a new fancy table when her mother's - which she uses as a work desk - has started tipping. Asbjørn is ...
Sofie (Laura Østergaard Buhl) and her mother Tove (Ann Eleonora Jørgensen) move out to her grandmother's (Vigga Bro) for Christmas before they're moving to Singapore for Tove's new job. When they arrive at grandma's, Sofie meets the new family that's moved in on the second floor. She and the new boy Jonas (Lukas Schwarz Thorsteinsson) become friends and discover a secret cave out in the woods. In the cave they find a Chained man who claims he's the norse god Loki (Loke in danish). Loke (Martin Brygmann) grants the children three wishes if they'll in return, remove his chains. The children accept, but doing so they are unaware of the fact that they've just started ragnarok, the end of the world. In the cave they find a portal which leads to Valhalla, where the norse gods live. Will Sofie and Jonas stop Loki before Ragnarok breaks loose and the other gods find out what they've done.
This show was a fresh show on norwegian TV when i first watched it and although i initially watched it because the other two options where crappy this one turned out to rather amusing. Bit slow in the beginning with little action happening i initially expected as you gotta save the best for the last episodes as is the case in most x-mas calendars, but the facts being given about the gods is always a bit fascinating to teach and its an easy way to learn about the northern countries heritage in terms of culture.
Definitely recommend it and i can say this much that i will most likely watch it next year should it be sendt again.
