Sweden in 1943 was a very trying time as the country deemed itself neutral whereas those around it had chosen sides. Under the surface, there are those who believe some of Hitler's ideas such as racial supremacy. Those who believe in a pure bloodline will do anything to make it so - including kidnapping and murder.

I desperately wanted to enjoy this book as it covers my favorite period in time and has comparisons to other amazing World War II historical fiction but I found the story slow and lacking. I hoped the story would pick up pace and excitement but sadly, it never did. There were moments of interest that reignited my hopes only to release them to a slower timeline. I found the premise to be interesting as it was a new area of historical fiction that could be very interesting.
