Strindberg’s Star is the first book from Swedish author Jan Wallentin. It’s been an international bestseller and now comes to the US in a translation by Rachel Wilson-Broyles. The plot centers on an expert of religious symbols and Nazi history, and also ex-psychologist and current prescription pill addict, Don Titelman who is asked by a cave diver to come out to his remote cabin to examine some odd things he found in a dive where a dead body was also found. Upon his arrival he finds the diver dead. From there the plot has Don and his lawyer Eva exploring the world on the run from a secret society and uncovering long hidden secrets of history including norse mythology and Nazi’s. The book is very Dan Brown-ish with some shades of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo thrown in.
