His next project was an epic Viking story set in 10th century Iceland, called ‘The Exile’. It tells the story of Viking warrior Hallstein Thordson, who returns home after a long exile for murdering his best friend Hraffn. The story of 192 pages was published in Scratch Books in May 2019. The story was inspired by his mother, who has Finnish roots and often took him to visit Viking-related musea. Kriek also cited ‘Wickie the Viking and Jean Van Hamme and Grzegorz Rosinski’s ‘Thorgal’ as influences and especially the 1984 Icelandic cult film ‘When the Raven Flies’ (1984).
