Nope. The knight refuses because the troll isn't christian, but a creature of the devil.

Круто! Каменюки очень классные. Знатоки не прокомментировали пропорции дамы? Что-то то ли торс длинноват, то ли ноги коротки, то ли у меня с глазами что-то ) Подумал что в расщелине скалы прикольно было бы разместить каких-нибудь "гномов", примотрелся, а они там есть!!!

Probably the most well known swedish ballad in Germany. Mostly due to this band  and there interpretation:

Ah yes.. Gothic. Good ol'times. It was quite a curiousum to meet them there. Although I didn't knew them back then and started to love them years later.
Here's another fascinating version of the song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=6E-D_8…
