What happened at the end of The Mountain Troll?
Still saddened by the death of her father after a mix-up between the humans and the creature, Nora delve into her father’s research on these mythological beings, remembering that her progenitor always said that trolls turn to stone in sunlight. However, as this does not seem to be the case this time, the paleontologist then discovers something very interesting: direct UV rays are needed for this to happen, and as the giant only attacked on cloudy days, this prevented it from being petrified.
She confides this information to Kris, leading a team of military men led by the man to create an ultraviolet ray trap against the monster, using the skull of a baby of its species found in the dungeons of the castle. However, seeing the troll suffering and cornered, Nora tries to abort the plan, but it is too late, the sun appears, petrifying the entity completely. It is then that, in the final scene, the paleontologist and the advisor Andreas wonder if there are more of them hidden out there.
