The Templars, Two Kings and a Pope is the novelized reconstruction of a crucial 25-year period in Templar history, before the Order of the Temple was disbanded. At one level, this is the story of a covert war, of the secret organization known as The Brotherhood, and of the one man who stood at the center; a Swiss named Lord Otto de Grandson who became England's King Edward I's right-hand man. At another level, this is a spiritual story about Jesus' secret teachings that he reserved for the select few.

One of my favorite books of all time. This gives a very easy to read/listen history of the most exciting part of the Templars. I started searching for the Gnostic gospels as soon as I finished. To my knowledge the Jesus Gospel itself is not available, but there are others including the Gospel of Judas, Mary Magdaline, etc. Regarding the narrator, you have to get used to him. Give the book a chance and you will be enthralled in no time.

Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.
