So the main ghost-group might have continued following the wheelbarrow while a smaller group would have investigated the tracks of the giant.

This would require another intellectual jump on murderghosts side. And, frankly, if they became intellectual enough to do such maneuver, they would probably knew better than hang on a wall together, turning themselves into easily noticeable object.

P.S. Interesting detail; only two central ghosts are actually looking on Emil & Lalli. The others doesn't seems to be interested. Not exactly the typical murderghosts behavior - they tended to constantly track their targets. Maybe it is some other ghosts, who just accidently came on their way?

These ghosts seem to be surprisingly more capable of speech than the usual variety, they seem genuinely surprised that Emil can see/hear them.

Yes, very interesting. Not only surprized, but they also seems to be capalbe of meaningful communication. Intelligent.

And this made Lalli reaction... strange. He is almost paniking, but it isn't kind of "run, fool, or they would kill us!" kind of panic. It is more like... he is worried that ghosts could tell Emil something, that Lalli didn't want him to know.

Well, it seems unlikely that these ghosts are under Sleipnope's command. They don't seem hostile, rather passive, actually

They clearly puzzled that someone could see them; obviously not from Sleipnope crew, because murderghosts already knew that.

I wonder if they're ghosts? I mean they probably are, but do we know for certain that there isn't a bunch of trolls behind that wall and Emilalli is seeing their souls with Mage X-Ray Vision™?

Nah, I think it's more Lalli's worry'd that Emil would panic at seeing/hearing the ghosts.

There's no precedent to really say yea or nea on it... sooo... wait till monday I guess.

I read it as troll souls within the house based on the fact that Emil saw something "in" there and it looks like they are clinging to the walls and ceiling within the structure, as trolls have been seen doing before.
And does page 158 provide precedent for or against that? (Lalli seeing the troll's spirit above the train, but it was much more "solid")
It could totally be ghosts, though! That was just my first impression.

The two may not be mutually exclusive.

That's pretty much exactly what I was thinking.

The two may not be mutually exclusive.

Quite true!

Can't everybody see trolls, though?

I mean, not through walls. But they don't seem to be saying 'hey! you can see through the wall!' but 'you can see us'; as if it weren't the seeing through the wall part that's remarkable.

I think everybody can see trolls in the sense of the physical shape. What surprises the trolls is that they themselves are being perceived. They are in Denmark, so this may be their first exposure to someone with mage sight.

It's the troll's spiritual form. I think trolls and mages can perceive each other because of their link to the spiritual realm. Emil, being a non-mage, is probably un-interfaceable for trolls. So the trolls, don't feel Emil (spiritually, anyway, I think), but Emil can thanks to Lalli-vision.

This page is giving me an interesting thought about Lalli. I was trying to figure out whether he was strong enough to shield himself from the effects of the trollified spirit eye contact (a possibility mentioned by Onni when he keeps Reynir from making eye contact with Pastor A) or just very good at avoiding eye contact. And then it hit me that many of us suspect to him have a disorder with symptoms that include avoiding eye contact...
