Correct Option: 2  

Explanation:
Maelstrom
The phenomenon is a result of exceptionally strong tidal currents, strong local winds, and the position of the Lofoten and the underwater topography. The whirlpools are called Moskstraumen or Moskenstraumen in Norway; they feature in literature in the 13th century Old Norse Edda, in Herman Melville's "Moby Dick", and in work by Edgar Allan Poe, Walter Moers and Jules Verne.
