Hellboy: The Bones of Giants #1

The four-issue mini-series adaptation of Hellboy: The Bones of Giants begins here with Hellboy and Abe Sapien sent to Sweden to investigate the discovery of what appears to be the smoking skeletal remains of the Norse God Thor. After picking up the hammer, Hellboy witnesses odd visions and becomes temporarily possessed. Even after regaining his senses, Hellboy is incapable of laying the hammer down and still seems mentally connected to the hammer's pull leading the group to a cave in the mountains which has recently been disturbed.

Looking for help on the unusual situation Professor Edmond Aickman who isn't exactly pleased to see Hellboy even decades after their previous encounter involving King Vold, but he is initially quite curious about the hammer although something concerns him enough to flee in the dead of the night. Just what has Hellboy stumbled into this time?
