Dick Harrison is a renowned historian in Sweden. His non fiction books are well written and thorougly researched. This one, however, is not good. The story is of the type that many writers of historical fiction make: they let their protagonist be the one who possesses insight in the future and "guesses" what will happen. Or the writer puts words in his protagonists's mouth which are very un-historical. A professional historian should know better - he should know how people acually thought in this time, and not let them think like 20th century people. Also, the author decided to be the narrator of this book - very bad decision. His dialect is not suited for reading to the whole Swedish-speaking nation.
