The Second Ring – Characters

With the dramatic backdrop of the Occupation of Norway during the Second World War, two men find a strange bond.

How To BuyAxel
is a proud German, coming from a long line of soldiers. As scholar and a romantic, he is dedicated to the advancement of German culture, something that he believes the war is occluding rather than promoting.

Klaus
is a Norwegian working with the occupiers, eager to advance, eager to make a difference among his own people.

Bruno
is Axel’s school chum who has managed to follow him in his career, perhaps because he envies him–or needs to control him.

Mauritz
Bruno’s Unteroffizier mit Portapee, a communications officer who operates the Enigma, the German encryption machine. He works with Klaus in the Comm Room, and is beleaguered with annoying problems. . . mainly with his equipment.

Leni Riefenstahl
is a German film director who made a name for herself as an actor climbing mountains, and now makes spectacular epics for the Führer.
