The Last Sentence

With Sweden caught between Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Russia, the country’s elites chose a policy of neutrality and compliance, with few daring to speak up against the evil around them.

In the eyes of many of his countrymen, his pen was far more dangerous to Sweden than the Nazi sword.
