Read this book and its sequel in Swedish translation some 25 years ago as part of a Mika Waltari binge. I still remember parts of the setting and some scenes quite vividly. Waltari had a knack for setting good stories in complex historical frameworks, with a fair bit of character development thrown in, and this was no exception.
if you read any of the awesome Waltari novels, you will know the pattern, but still each of the books has a unique flavor and this one is covering the Scandinavian troubles of the 16th century as the Danish king tried to impose his rule on Swden and Finland - unwittingly helped by Michael who becomes a traitor to his people in consequence.
