“An audacious adventure novel a la Jules Verne steeped in Norse mythology and Nazi esotericism.”
—Publishers Weekly — Publishers Weekly

"In this breathtaking debut novel, lavish with historic detail and colorful panorama, Jan Wallentin brilliantly evokes the mysterious, underwater, middle-earth worlds of Jules Verne, interwoven with the pulse-pounding, countdown thrillers of James Bond. STRINDBERG’S STAR is a tale of eternal evil – with two diabolical "fathers," more deeply disturbed than Darth Vader, pulling the hidden strings.”
—Katherine Neville, author of THE EIGHT and THE FIRE — Katherine Neville

“Evil Nazi schemes, Norse mythology, Pompeian legend and a balloon expedition to the North Pole are narrative bedfellows in this sprawling, fanciful tale…it scores as a larkishly offbeat alternative to the dour mysteries Swedes are known for.”
—Kirkus — Kirkus

“All the elements of a Dan Brown thriller…A perfect vacation read.”
—Booklist — Booklist

"…An intriguing thrill ride…a combination of the secrets and symbols of Dan Brown with the adventures of Jules Verne…unlike anything else you’ll read this year."
