Thor's Hammer

Tales of Thor continue into modern Scandinavia, such as the Norwegian Thorsvarme "Thor’s warmth" for lightning, and the Swedish godgubben åfar "The good old fellow is taking a ride" when it thunders. A Scandinavian folk belief that lightning frightens away trolls may be a reflection of Thor’s role in fighting such beings. The lack of trolls in modern Scandinavia is explained as a result of the "accuracy and efficiency of the lightning strokes"!
