This is the icy Norse Underworld ruled by Hel. It’s inhabited by a growing population of ghastly spirits — in particular, the souls of cowards, losers, wastrels, lazybums and liars — Helheim is a grim place at the best of times.
With marrow-clenching cold and no heating facilities, there is nothing for the punished soul to do except shiver out their miserable stint in eternity. If you ever get haunted by a specter, you can easily tell if it’s come from Helheim — the ghost will be shivering and covered with goose bumps instead of you.
