From reports of official counterespionage investigations and interrogations, personal information, and assistance from experts in military intelligence, author and journalist Rönblom traces the activities of double agent Colonel Stig Wennerstrӧm, Swedish Air Force. For nearly fifteen years Wennerstrӧm remained in place working for Swedish and American intelligence while he was actually an agent of Soviet intelligence. Caught by counterespionage, he was convicted of gross espionage and sentenced to life imprisonment in June 1964.
