Förrädare / Deceit
For the moment there are no indications that the attack will also extend to Swedish territory. I repeat: at this moment there is nothing that indicates that Sweden would be subjected to danger. Our usual sources have confirmed that no armed forces appear to be set for an attack on us. Not during the course of today. He continued: the situation in Copenhagen appears to be calm, while struggles are continuing in the Oslo area.
April 1940. Denmark and Norway have been occupied. The inevitable catastrophe that the Bureau has prepared for is drawing closer. Charlie Westerholm, a new intelligence officer, is wondering whom they are actually supposed to watch. The communists, the British weapon transports, the German intelligence service … or the budding Norwegian resistance movement? And somewhere at the National Board of Health and Welfare works a man who provides the Germans with the Swedish intelligence service’s information about resistance men and Jews.
Ola Larsmo’s new novel is a story in the spirit of John Le Carré about a time when Sweden was a centre of liaison for all types of intelligence service, and treachery a way of life.
