The Screech Owls are off to Stockholm to take part in the first-ever International Goodwill Peewee Tournament, featuring teams from Finland, Norway, the Czech Republic, Germany, and Russia, as well as from all over Sweden.
Not only do the Owls get to go on the trip of a lifetime, they also learn the differences between European and North American hockey and make some great new friends – including the thirteen-year-old Russian phenomenon Slava Shadrin, who is already being called “the next Pavel Bure.”
The young hockey star even travels with his own bodyguards. The police, it turns out, suspect the “Russian Mob” is planning to kidnap Slava and hold him for ransom!
And sure enough, when Slava and his new Screech Owls friends give his bodyguards the slip, the Mob moves in. But the villains end up with more captives than they intended…
Kidnapped in Sweden is the fifth book in the Screech Owls Series by Roy MacGregor, joining Mystery at Lake Placid, The Night They Stole the Stanley Cup, The Screech Owls’’Northern Adventure, and Murder at Hockey Camp.
