Description - From Information to Intrigue by C. G. McKay

A neutral country tends to attract the attention of the secret service of the belligerents, and Sweden during World War II was no exception. This volume offers an account of some key activities of the Allied secret services and their German counterparts in Sweden. It also describes in some detail Swedish wartime legislation and Swedish organizations concerned with internal security and intelligence. In dealing with British secret services and their non-Soviet allies, the author reviews the Rickman episode, Danish and Norwegian contributions to intelligence-gathering in the field, the Vanek organization, the involvement of anti-Nazi German groups and individuals, Polish-Japanese co-operation in Stockholm and various deception schemes using Swedish channels. The author also describes the organization of the Abwehr and SD in Sweden and examines the particular missions of Dr Kramer and others. New light is shed on Siegfried Ascher, the spy at the Vatican.
