Unveil the legacy and history of Sweden like never before.
Sweden is a remarkable place, famous for its happy population, its fearsome Viking history, and the beautiful fjords and landscapes that mark this far-flung land.

This audiobook is a must-listen for anyone interested in Scandinavia and world history.
